Excerpts from a fundraising blast email we received today from Tom Tancredo’s gubernatorial campaign, attributed to longtime advisor Bay Buchanan. Skip past the “John Hickenlooper’s ‘sanctuary city’ kills people” boilerplate at the top, which you’ve heard before, to this part:
Another fact about Tom’s race: Last week, Colorado’s Republicans had the unenviable task of choosing from two of the worst candidates in recent memory.
In the contest choosing which candidate was less embarrassing, Dan Maes barely won. But what kind of candidate is Dan Maes?
Maes claims to be an executive and yet he has had no executive experience.
He claims to be a businessman but made less than the poverty level the past two years.
Maes boasts about his record as police officer in Kansas where he was fired after only a short period of time.
He claims to be against amnesty, but a few short months ago he was for it.
Incredibly, the Maes campaign has reported that over $42,000 in campaign contributions were slipped directly into his own pockets for “mileage reimbursement.”
In short, Maes is a man with no discernible credentials to be a candidate, much less a Governor.
As I said before, only Tom can stop Hickenlooper! But he can’t win without our help. And friend, Tom deserves all our support…
A race-ending percentage of voters would appear to agree.
