Is he a republican or a Constitution Party candidate?

DENVER – In a move that complicates Republican efforts to take back the Colorado governor's office, former GOP congressman Tom Tancredo said Monday that he plans to change parties and run on the American Constitution Party ticket.

Tancredo issued a terse, one-sentence statement saying he intends to register his new party affiliation with the secretary of state then seek the nomination for governor.

He believes Republican candidates Scott McInnis and Dan Maes have no chance of beating Democrat John Hickenlooper in November.

Tancredo previously gave Maes and McInnis a deadline of noon Monday to agree to step down if they are trailing in the polls after the Aug. 10 primary. Both men refused.

"It's high noon, and I'm still here," Maes said.

  • I know little about the guy but in a local race it doesn't really matter what he calls himself. If the Tea Party people vote for him it will be because of his stances on the issues and if he differs enough from the Republican(whom I don't know) he might win. If the Republican has similar stances and isn't a RINO then all bets are off. His running on this 3rd party ticket could give the Democrat the win.

  • Why do I know this name, and it seems very negative to me? Is this the guy Meghan Kelly had a fight with the other day?

    Thanks for that answe! I think this is why most view republican and Tea party as interchangeable. If they can't get the nomination one way..they'll just call themselves something else...(Like SPECTOR)
