CO-GOV: Republican hardliner Tom Tancredo jumps into crowded Colorado race

After back-to-back losses in 2010 and 2014, immigration hardliner and former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo plans to try again in 2018 to become Colorado’s next governor — a move spurred in part by his anger at Republicans for not protesting when a Colorado Springs resort canceled a white nationalist conference where he was supposed to speak.

His entry into a crowded Republican field adds a combustible element to a primary already brewing with rivalries, and it could provide new insight into the mood of the Colorado GOP at the start of the Trump administration.

“I think people really are ready for somebody who is not a part of the establishment, and that is certainly yours truly,” said Tancredo in a phone call confirming his bid.

The last time Tancredo ran for governor, he lost by about 3 percentage points in the Republican primary to Bob Beauprez, another former congressman, in a four-way race.

1. As hard as we try, we just can't keep the cockroaches from scurrying out of the cracks.

2. Only surprised that it took him so long.

He's probably thinking that having a racist in the White House means there should be a racist in the governor's mansion.

Can't wait for this blight to be over and done!
