Concerned Women for America Legislative Action Committee (CWALAC) has endorsed former Rep. Tom Tancredo for Colorado governor.
Tancredo is running on the American Constitution Party ticket against Republican Dan Maes and Democrat John Hickenlooper. Even before the announcement, pressure had been mounting for Maes to drop out of the race.
Recent polling shows Tancredo and Hickenlooper in a close race, with Maes trailing badly. If Maes fails to garner 10 percent of the vote at the polls, the Republican Party will lose its official designation as majority party in Colorado.
According to CWALAC's endorsement press release:
Dan Maes, the former owner of a Credit Reporting Agency, has flip flopped on several issues including abortion and gun rights, and his first decision after winning the Republican nomination was to choose Tambor Williams, a pro-abortion former legislator, as his running mate.
John Hickenlooper, as mayor of Denver, has aligned himself with the liberal ideas of Obama and Pelosi. Hickenlooper is a proponent of big government and more regulations on business owners.
Tom Tancredo has a long track record of standing up to the liberal agenda in Colorado with a solid pro-life pro-family record as a member of Congress. Tom Tancredo is a strong defender of the right to life, from the beginning of development. His candidacy gives the people of Colorado an experienced, solid, pro-family conservative for governor.
This endorsement comes on the heels of other prominent endorsements, including Erick Erickson
of Red State.com, Michele Malkin
, and conservative radio host Mark Levin. Congressman Mike Coffman and former Congressmen Bob Beauprez and Bob Schaffer have also endorsed Tancredo.
Our New Approach to Comments
In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss
– we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around.
