Is Tancredo Dropping Out? Reports Indicate Colorado Congressman Will Quit the GOP Race

Today's Republican primary news: Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado may be dropping out of the race for his party's presidential nomination.

USA Today, among others, is reporting that Tancredo will "make a major announcement regarding the campaign tomorrow [Thursday] at 3 p.m. ET in Des Moines." According to the Associated Press, Tancredo may drop his presidential bid and run for the Senate in Colorado.

The AP also reports that Tancredo "has consistently polled at the back of the seven-person GOP field. He has based his campaign on opposition to illegal immigration, running television ads that link lax border security to terrorist attacks, rape and other crimes."

Again, quoting the AP: "Tancredo announced in October he wouldn't seek a sixth term in Congress but hinted he would consider running for the Senate after his presidential bid. Colorado will have an open Senate seat next year when Republican Wayne Allard retires."

Our take: Good riddance, Tom. Bashing illegal immigrants plays well in certain quarters (Oklahoma being a prime example) but the issue was never as simple as Tancredo and his allies pretended, a point that President Bush, Sen. John McCain and others have made.

In any case, Tancredo had a proverbial snowball's chance of winning the nomination, polling at a whopping 1 percent in recent polls.

Bashing illegal immigrants...

Mercy. To listen to you talk, I about half think that if a person had the temerity to complain about being burglarized, you'd characterize it as "bashing."
