Tom Tancredo counting on intensity of Republicans’, independents’ support
Tom Tancredo told close to 200 supporters in Littleton Monday that he is counting on the intensity of his support by Republicans and independents will help him win the governor's race tomorrow. And 11% of Democrats are supporting him, he said. The illegal immigration issue, he added, is resonating with Democrats. The head of the Republican Party in Colorado says a vote for Republican Dan Maes is a wasted vote, Tancredo noted. Tancredo needs to take some more support away from Maes to gain 80% of the GOP's votes. If he does that, he will win, he predicted.
