Tom Tancredo will announce cabinet officers Saturday
In a smart bid for free media, "conservative independent" Tom Tancredo announced that tomorrow he will disclose the names of the people he would appoint to his cabinet if he won the gubernatorial race against John Hickenlooper in the Nov. 2 election.
HIs unconventional announcement shows that he's ready to lead and make decisions while his opponent is still talking about "collaboration" with special interests that would defend their turff until the last Colorado taxpayer was out of a job and broke.
That Tancredo is holding his press conference in Grand Junction shows that he is going after Hickenlooper's vulnerability in the energy exploration industry. Unemployment in the energy exploration and production industry has soared under unfriendly regulations imposed by Democrat Governor Bill Ritter and effectively endorsed by "Governor-elect" John Hickenlooper.
