Tom Tanredo (Racist) Catching Up To Hickenlooper In Colorado’s Governor Race

1 Comment

Republicans are abandoning Dan Maes in droves and joining their Teabagging brethren in supporting of the craziest (literally) people running for any office: Tom Tancredo.

Hickenlooper has stalled out at ~46% of potential voters while Tancredo is sucking up most of Maes’ support.  Maes is the “official” Republican nominee.  Tancredo joined the race late in the cycle, saying that Maes wasn’t loony “conservative” enough to run as a Republican.

For what it’s worth, I’ve said for months that Hickenlooper needed to establish him identity so that Coloradans didn’t have a choice between a “Conservative”, a Teabagger and a wanna-be Conservative.  Given those non-choices, the Teabaggers are sure to convince enough Republicans to vote for one of their nutty candidates.  I don’t want a Gov. Tancredo, but Hickenlooper has to give voters solid reasons to vote for him.  If he doesn’t, we’ll be stuck with a psycho running Colorado for four years.
