    Panicked liberals and crony Republican elitists agree: Tom Tancredo would be bad for their Big Government and Big Business rackets. That’s exactly why I support him in Colorado’s June 24 GOP primary election for governor. A fear-mongering ad campaign by the left-wing group “ProgressNow,” which is funded by billionaire George Soros, hyperventilated last week that “Tancredo believes Obamacare is a scam.” Gasp! “Scam” is putting it politely, of course. Billions of dollars have been wasted on defunct and dysfunctional Obamacare health exchanges.

    Gov. John Hickenlooper called Thursday for a focus on bipartisanship in the 2014 legislative session, but Republicans can be forgiven for greeting his proposal with a certain skepticism. The 2013 legislative session, often described as the most liberal in state history, may have also been the most partisan. Democrats pushed through major legislation with no Republican votes on a half-dozen fronts, including election reform, gun control, education funding, and the rural renewable-energy standard. “It would be lovely if he behaved in a bipartisan manner, but that’s not what we saw last year,” said state Sen. Greg Brophy (R-Wray... ... This...

    MILWAUKEE — If Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper (D) is worried about his reelection odds, he’s not showing it publicly. “It seemed like I really had an unfair advantage,” Hickenlooper quipped after a Democratic Governors Association briefing here Friday afternoon. “The approval ratings were so high — it really didn’t seem even fair. So, we made a few strategic decisions to try to move ourselves back into play, forcing us to be on our game, a little more focused.” A June Quinnipiac University poll showed the first-term Democrat running neck and neck with Republican Tom Tancredo, a failed 2010 gubernatorial candidate...

    "I have run quixotic races. This is not one of them," says Tom Tancredo. The Republican, a former Colorado congressman whose crusade against illegal immigration evolved into a gadfly campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008 wants you to know he's serious this time: He wants another shot at Gov. John Hickenlooper. Four years ago, Tancredo mounted a last-minute campaign on the Constitution Party ticket, as Colorado's Republican gubernatorial nominee melted down. In two months, Tancredo scored 36 percent of the vote, three times more than Republican Dan Maes, but 15 points behind Hickenlooper. This time, Tancredo says, there's...

Quinnipiac now has his approvals below 50 percent, and he’s slightly underwater with independents. Voters also disapprove of the Democratic state legislature, which recently enacted strict gun control laws (and whose Senate leader is now subject to a recall effort) 49 percent to 36 percent approving...

    Last year, the Obama administration tried to block the execution of Humberto Leal Garcia. In 1994, at age 21, Leal kidnapped, murdered and raped a 16-year-old girl named Adria Sauceda. There was never much doubt as to Leal’s guilt, and the administration did not oppose the execution on the grounds that Leal was innocent or even that he did not receive a fair trial. Rather, administration officials were worried that executing him would “seriously jeopardize” relations with Mexico. According to the administration’s brief, since Leal was a “Mexican national,” he should have been offered assistance from the Mexican consulate when...

    f Newt Gingrich is a "policy wonk" as his friends proclaim, he is a very lazy one. He should have read the Kriebel Foundation's "Red Card Solution" before endorsing it as a non-amnesty solution to our immigration conundrum. The so-called Red Card Solution purports to create a new guest-worker program that solves all of our immigration problems. It strengthens border security, helps employers fill low-skilled jobs, bars criminals from participation and does all of this by "empowering the private sector" without use of taxpayer dollars. Maybe in the fine print it also wipes out the national debt. The problem is,...

    Herman Cain would make a great president of the United States. He is my candidate, and he has a good chance of becoming the candidate of the Republican Party. Cain's only weakness is political inexperience, and that leads to mistakes in his campaign, but it is not a disqualification for the office. In fact, in the eyes of most voters, it is more a blessing than a curse. Based on my 30 years in public life, I see three qualifications for public office and for the office of president.

Tancredo also said he believes Obama and Democratic Colorado gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper are "kindred spirits."

Tom Tancredo, a pro-life 3rd party candidate, and pro-abortion Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, a Democrat. Tancredo, a staunch pro-life, pro-family advocate known for his anti-illegal-immigration views, has surged into a dead heat with Hickenlooper, now that GOP candidate Dan Maes campaign has collapsed amid allegations of campaign finance abuse and flip-flopping on the issues. Running on the American Constitution Party (ACP) ticket, Tancredo now picks up 43 percent of the vote, according to a poll of 1067 likely voters...

Colorado has an estimated 200,000 or more illegal immigrants who drain over $1.6 billion in taxpayer dollars annually, according to a recent study by the Federation for American Immigration Reform. Colorado spends over $50 million alone on prosecuting and incarcerating criminal immigrants. Beginning in 2004, Arizona enacted a series of referenda and state laws on this matter, and SB 1070 is only the most recent. The most controversial part of the new Arizona law has been...

    Colorado’s Republican gubernatorial candidate keeps stumbling, and the short-term winner is GOP-turned-American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo. A new Rasmussen Reports poll released Tuesday shows Tancredo, the bombastic former congressman known for his anti-immigration crusades, leading GOP nominee Dan Maes for the first time, 25 percent to 21 percent. It’s a dramatic switch from late August, when the firm’s poll showed Maes leading Tancredo 24 percent to 14 percent. But the long-term winner is the same: the Democratic nominee, Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper, who earned 46 percent support. That’s up from 36 percent in late August. The Maes-Tancredo reversal comes...

    The announcement by former congressman Tom Tancredo that he'll run for governor of Colorado as a fringe party candidate follows a familiar pattern: established politicians turn to protest campaigns only after they've been disgraced, defeated and rejected by the mainstream. Their minor party dalliances represent a desperate, pathetic bid to keep the media spotlight, more than they reflect any practical agenda or commitment to ideological purity. In Tancredo's case, he remains tainted by his embarrassing 2008 presidential race. A full three years before the Iowa caucuses, he became one of the first Republicans to announce his intention to run, and...

    Top Colorado Republicans peeled away from their party’s gubernatorial candidate Thursday, and a conservative national website urged Dan Maes to get out of the race. Maes, who defeated Scott McInnis last month for the GOP nomination for governor, resisted the urging that he abandon the race against Democrat John Hickenlooper, the mayor of Denver, and former Republican Tom Tancredo, who joined a third party.

    By next Tuesday, the day after Labor Day, there could be a new Republican candidate for governor to replace current nominee Dan Maes. Names again are circulating as possible replacements, including the 2006 Republican candidate for governor, Bob Beauprez, and Jane Norton, the former lieutenant governor who recently lost the GOP Senate primary to Ken Buck. Although Maes said Wednesday he is no longer talking to the press, Republicans statewide could hardly contain their speculation that the rookie candidate might be replaced on the ballot by early next week. According to sources in the Colorado Republican Party and elsewhere interviewed...

    Democratic candidate John Hickenlooper now holds a double-digit lead in the three-way race for governor of Colorado. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Colorado Voters finds Hickenlooper, the mayor of Denver, with 43% support. Businessman Dan Maes, the winner of Tuesday’s Republican Primary, captures 31% of the vote, while American Constitution Party candidate Tom Tancredo trails with 18%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and five percent (5%) are undecided. This is the first poll conducted since Maes won the Republican primary. It shows Maes with a bit more support than he had before...

    Weeks of publicity for former U.S. Rep. Scott McInnis over plagiarism appear to have melted his previously huge lead over Evergreen businessman Dan Maes in Colorado's Republican gubernatorial primary. The latest Denver Post/ 9News poll shows Maes with an edge of 43 percent to 39 percent over McInnis among 588 Republicans who have already voted in the primary or said they were likely to vote (the question had a margin of error of 4.1 percentage points). Maes trailed McInnis by 28 percentage points in a June poll. Dave Sarton II, 46, a Republican respondent from Colorado Springs, is among those...

    Last week, when Gallup reported that fully half of Americans have "very little" or "no" confidence in Congress (the highest percentage for any institution since the pollster first asked this question in 1973), the news only underscored the scale of political opportunity for Republicans in the upcoming elections. But with this opportunity comes a profound responsibility. It's disturbing when the citizens of the world's greatest democratic republic feel so alienated from their government, and it's dangerous to America's long-term civic health. Even as Americans have been buffeted by the worst economic downturn since the Depression, they have been politically brutalized...

    Leaders of 21 state Tea Party groups, representing about 10,000 people, said Sunday they have been betrayed by Tom Tancredo and in an open letter beseeched the former congressman not to run for governor as a third-party candidate. Tancredo has given Republican gubernatorial candidates until noon today to commit to pulling out of the governor's race after the primary if polls show the winner trailing Democrat John Hickenlooper. If that doesn't happen, Tancredo says, he'll run for governor as the American Constitution Party candidate.

    Denver Post reporting: Former Congressman Tom Tancredo is in the race for Colorado governor, he said this morning. “I will officially announce at noon that I will seek the nomination of the constitution party,” Tancredo told The Denver Post. The Littleton Republican must file some papers with the Colorado Secretary of State and register as a member of the American Constitution Party, but then “he’s ready to go,” raising money, disclosing his platform and launching a website that is already put together.

    Support for GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis is eroding among Republicans but he remains a viable candidate even after a plagiarism scandal, according to a new Denver Post poll. Twenty percent of registered Republican voters who supported McInnis prior to this week's allegations that he plagiarized previously published material said they will now back another candidate. Another 39 percent of those who originally supported McInnis said they will continue to stand behind him. However, when given a list of other Republicans who could be the party's nominee, 64 percent of GOP voters picked another candidate over McInnis. When asked who...

    According to a new Denver Post poll, Republicans likely to vote in next month’s gubernatorial primary like former Congressman Tom Tancredo over scandalized former Congressman Scott McInnis, prompting Tancredo to tell the Post he’s “surprised and flattered” and that both McInnis and Evergreen businessman Dan Maes should get out of the race. “Neither can win the general election [against Democrat John Hickenlooper],” Tancredo told the Post after he beat out McInnis 29 percent to 19 percent, with 13 percent going to Maes. The other three choices for “strongest Republican gubernatorial candidate” – Jane Norton, Josh Penry and Bruce Benson –...
