Tancredo Will Run for Colorado Governor

“After back-to-back losses in 2010 and 2014, immigration hardliner and former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) plans to try again in 2018 to become Colorado’s next governor — a move spurred in part by his anger at Republicans for not protesting when a Colorado Springs resort canceled a white nationalist conference where he was supposed to speak,” the Denver Post reports.

Coffman Wants a Primary Challenge

Rep. Mike Coffman (R-CO) “picked an unusual fight Monday: he wants another Republican to challenge him in next year’s primary election,” 9News reports.

“Not just any Republican. Coffman wants to do battle with Tom Tancredo (R) — the firebrand conservative former congressman who used to occupy Coffman’s seat in the House of Representatives.”

Said Coffman: “Come after me. We could define what the Republican party is for a generation to come.”

Tancredo Offers His Services to Trump

Former Rep. Tom Tancredo (R-CO) told the Denver Post he’s a big supporter of Donald Trump but said the billionaire presidential candidate “needs to be a little bit more artful” when talking about the problems of illegal immigration.

Said Tancredo: “He should take lessons from me on how to talk to the press. For a small fee — no, actually for a very large fee — I will help him out. You’ve got to learn how to talk about it, which takes years of practice, which God knows I’ve had.”
