Tancredo For Senate

Instead of president, if current Colorado Senator Wayne Allard does not run for reelection in 2008 (text and video):
Washington - Colorado Rep. Tom Tancredo will run for the U.S. Senate in 2008 if Republican Sen. Wayne Allard does not seek re-election, the Littleton Republican said Wednesday.

Known nationally for his unyielding stance on illegal immigration, Tancredo said he'd have more power to push that cause in the Senate, "where one person can be a lot more effective on an issue than one person in the House."

Tancredo confirmed his interest in the Senate to The Denver Post after he made a similar acknowledgment in a taped television interview.

When KBDI-Channel 12 interviewer Aaron Harber asked him, "If Wayne Allard were to not run for re-election, would you run for the Senate?" Tancredo replied, "Yeah, sure."
He could face Gov. Bill Owens in a primary race, and Rep. Mark Udall in the general election, where his single issue mentality could face wome withering criticism and opposition.

Tancrado is a great candidate for the United States Senate from Colorado. First, he continues to win in the 6th Congressional District overwhelmingly. Second, the issue of immigration is extremely important in Colorado and his position draws both Democrats and Republicans. If it does turn out to be Udall against Tancrado, a liberal democrat from Boulder against Mr Immigration, I place my money on Tancrado. Dont count him out yet!
