Tancredo: “Hickenlooper would be a bigger liberal than Ritter”

Tom Tancredo says that if conservative Coloradans are serious about electing a conservative to the governor’s office, he’s their only real choice.

“I will govern as a conservative,” Tancredo promised the nearly 100 people gathered Saturday night in a garage hanger at the Erie Air Park home of his running mate, Pat Miller.

He suggested he and Miller offer a choice for “a lot of people who believe what we believe in,” that “there is hope for our state, there is hope for our country if we just simply do what is necessary to shrink the size of government.”

“We can win,” Tancredo assured the people attending Saturday’s rally — the first such joint campaign event he’s held with Miller.

“We have a better chance of winning in a three-way race than the Republican candidate does in a two-way race,” Tancredo said.

Tancredo described the growing concerns he’d had about Evergreen businessman Maes’ electability and political positions, even before Maes won the Republican nomination in last month’s primary election.

Tancredo said he now thinks that Maes not only “can’t win” the general election, but that “he shouldn’t.”

As for Hickenlooper, Tancredo said would probably turn out to be an even “bigger liberal” than Ritter.     - More -
