GOP game changer? Tancredo seeks nomination to run for governor

The Denver PostTom Tancredo

DENVER (AP) – Former GOP congressman Tom Tancredo is seeking a third-party nomination to enter the Colorado governor’s race.

In a terse, one-sentence announcement, Tancredo said “I am going to seek the nomination of the American Constitution Party for governor of Colorado.”

Tancredo says Republican candidates Scott McInnis and Dan Maes have no chance of beating Democrat John Hickenlooper in November and he needs time to mount a campaign.

Tancredo will register his new party affiliation later with the Colorado Secretary of State and the party will form a vacancy committee to put him on the ballot by the end of the week.
