Skip to comments.Newspaper: Tancredo Vs. Hickenlooper A ‘Nightmare’ For GOP
Posted on 05/20/2014 5:59:38 PM PDT by ObamahatesPACoal
Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo couldnt win a statewide race if the Democratic candidate were caught in a sexting scandal, according to the Colorado Springs Gazettes editorial board.
In a scathing editorial, the paper urged Republican primary candidates Scott Gessler and Mike Kopp described in the editorial as capable candidates to fall on their swords and bow out of the June 24 primary race.
That would eliminate the chance for moderate Republicans to split three ways between them and former Congressman Bob Beauprez the scenario that makes it easiest for Tancredo to win the nomination.

Tancredo so far as I can see is a decent guy, The last governors election the GOPe establishment foisted a complete milquetoast idiot moron on us.
Now that Colorado voters can vote when they’re higher than a kite, I don’t see the GOP winning there ever again.
This isn't a moderate v. conservative issue. Tancredo's problem is he has said so many stupid things over so many years he carries tons of baggage. His negatives are very high.
Hmm, I seem to remember Tancredo sounding the alarms about the illegals flooding the southwest and into his state long before anybody else cared to get involved. Although I am in Ohio, I have always kinda kept an ear out for what Tancredo is doing and I sure dont recall him saying anything stupid over the years.
Care to prove that accusation?”
He don’t need to prove it anymore than democrats need to prove it.
Political reality is the art of perception not fact, not justice.
Tancredo has outraised them.
It think the consultants are going to go hungry if Tancredo and Tim Donnellly win the nominations. They won’t have any Chamber money to make ads with.
I remember that too, and I was in New Mexico at the time as i recall.
Still Tancredo can’t win hes proven that time and time again. All he will do is divide the remaining conservative vote.
Forgive me if im mistaken, but hasent Tancredo already lost several elections in Colorado?
I have no doubt that he already has a base from the previous experiences, but he seems to have already been negatively defined in Colorado. How is Tancredo going to convince people who have already sided against him several times to support him now?
Hickenlooper got 52%, GOP 11% and Tanc 37%.
Let’s see. No public school teachers, no draft dodgers, no dope legalizers,...
So who does that leave?
If it leaves a no-vote, consumer reluctance to buy, more consumer self-sufficiency, less economic activity in general, tourist malaise and consequent reduced revenues, that’s just too bad. Socialist, busybody, big government cannot continue in fatness without revenues of real value (e.g., from manufacturing, mining, agriculture, etc.). Let’s do the tighten-up. It’s happening all over, until we see decent candidates. Duncan Hunter Sr. is a good example.
you are so funny - hyperbole extreme - medical marijuana has been legal here for quite some time, and after “recreational marijuana” was legalized, Coloradans came together to recall 2 democrat senators, including the president of the Senate. Both of them were in seemingly safe districts.
They were also able to force another democrat nut job to resign ahead of her recall.
I love reading on FR how out of control the police in this country are, primarily due to the “war on drugs” which has turned into nothing more than a rights grab from citizens. Yet, when voters start turning on those actions by our government, by doing things like taking their power away by legalizing recreational marijuana use, these very same FR posters ridicule those actions.
Make up your mind. Is the government out of control and the people have the right to enforce their freedoms? Or are we settling for a police state to make us feel “safer” against such evil things.
RINO Beauprez and Tancredo need to drop out in favor of Scott Gessler.
"In a 2009 interview, Tancredo said Miami does not feel like America because so many people there speak Spanish: Look at what has happened to Miami. It has become a Third World country. You just pick it up and take it and move it someplace. You would never know youre in the United States of America. You would certainly say youre in a Third World country. When criticized for the remarks, he shot back, I knew speaking your mind could be dangerous in Havana. I guess its equally dangerous to do so in Miami. Apparently, there isnt much of a difference between the two anymore.
I travel to Miami on business. The comment was not only stupid, but ignorant.
Dick Armey, at the heart of the Tea Party movement calls Tommy T a "destructive" force in the Republican Party.
I voted for Tommy T in his last loss. I don't want to have to vote for that loser again. In my opinion nominating him would re-elect Hickenlooper.
Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo couldn’t win a statewide race if the Democratic candidate were caught in a sexting scandal, according to the Colorado Springs Gazette’s editorial board.
Hah! When a libertarian like Tom can't even catch a break in a stoner state like Colorado; then it shows how low losertarians have sunk.
Oops. Post 19 is for bamahead.
>> Tancredo so far as I can see is a decent guy,
Ditto. But his candor is not popular which unfortunately doesn’t help at the voting booth.
