Tom Tancredo says John Hickenlooper would be another Bill Ritter; Ritter gets an ‘F’ from Cato
Conservative gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo warns that Obama Democrat John Hickenlooper would not only just be another Governor Bill Ritter but also that if Hick becomes governor, he will rush to the hard left faster than Ritter has. And, in last night's Northern Colorado Debate in Longmont, Tancredo cited a book, Rich States and Poor States, and declared that tax policy is critical the the economic welfare of Colorado. In a new report, the Cato Institute gives Ritter an "F", mostly because of his spend and tax record. Governors who have backed tax and spending cuts are very popular in their states, notes Chris Edwards.
