Tancredo Enters Governors Race

Posted: November 1, 2017 at 4:30 pm by , in Capitol Coverage, Featured

Former Republican Congressman Tom Tancredo has added his name to the list of people vying to become Colorado’s next Governor. Bente Birkeland has more from the state capitol.

Tancredo’s is a controversial, and spirited immigration hardline – and this is his third time running for Governor.

Tancredo represented the Colorado Springs area in Congress for a decade. He says he met with former White House advisor Steve Bannon earlier this fall about entering the race – which now adds more unpredictability for the GOP. Also running are State treasurer Walker Stapleton, Investment Banker Doug Robinson who is Mitt Romney’s nephew, Arapahoe County District Attorney George Brauchler, and former state lawmaker Victor Mitchell. Democrats have a crowded field as well. Governor John Hickenlooper is term limited.
