As expected, Rep. Tancredo officially has bowed out of the presidential race, and is endorsing not Fred Thompson but Mitt Romney. Since Romney is favored by many of the state’s leading Republicans, this tells me that Tancredo has his eye on running for office again in 2010. Conventional wisdom is that he will plan to take on Senator Ken Salazar. How far Tancredo’s endorsement of Romney will go in corralling the necessary support for a Senate campaign remains to be seen. But it certainly cannot hurt.

Kin Tancreder akshually chorale it, tho? I mean, he stood in a room that had a piture of Robert E. Lee! A PITURE OF ROBERT E. LEE!!
Oh, the infamy of it.
I wuld surely love to see ole Tom not only go up ‘ginst Salazar, but take his seat from him. I’m a’feared, howevah, that the Colorader GOP elite will try to put the kabosh on a Tancrader candidacy. I truly hope I’m wrong. But when I read certain commints hither and yon from GOP elites, it do sound like maybe the fix is already in. Cain’t have no Republican Senator who rubs shoulders with the League of the South, who tawks about bombin’ Mecca, or who is akshually TELLIN’ THE TRUTH about what he intends to do to address illegal immigrashun. No sir, cain’t have that at all.
I’ve posted this at more than just this blog, but I definitely do not work for Romney’s campaign. I want some conservatives, who I feel haven’t given Mitt a fair shake thus far, to seriously reconsider their positions. Romney is clearly now the anti-illegal immigration candidate. What candidate can win the support of ALL conservatives…fiscal, defense, AND social? Mitt’s the man!
To answer your question, Cory, I think only two candidates fit the bill: Fred Thompson and Mitt Romney. They are my top two choices.
