Republican Governor’s Assn. releases 108-page book on John Hickenlooper

First, Tom Tancredo uses an attack ad that the Republican Governor's Assn. created for a campaign against John Hickenlooper. Now the RGA has released its 108-page book of opposition research, Top Reasons Hickenlooper is Wrong for Colorado.

Conclusion. The RGA has decided that Tom Tancredo has a chance to beat "Governor-elect" Obama Democrat Hickenlooper. While the RGA isn't putting money into the Tancredo campaign, it is providing all the support that it can by not complaining that Tancredo is using parts of its ad and by releasing its opposition research, which is a sunk cost for the RGA. Hickenlooper's tax and spending records:
