I believe in the free speech that liberals used to believe in, the economic freedom that conservatives used to believe in, and the personal freedom that America used to believe in.

Tom Tancredo To Drop Out Of Presidential Race

by @ 5:19 am on December 20, 2007. Filed under 2008 Election, Politics, Tom Tancredo

Fox News is reporting that Tom Tancredo will drop out of the Republican Presidential race in a speech later today in Iowa:

Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo plans to drop out of the race during an announcement Thursday afternoon in Des Moines, Iowa, GOP sources close to the campaign have told FOX News.

Tancredo, who has aggressively pushed his anti-illegal immigration message throughout the GOP primary race, has not been able to break through in the polls against his better known competitors. He and California Rep. Duncan Hunter typically poll in the single digits behind Texas Rep. Ron Paul in national surveys.

The response of most people to the news, of course, is amazement at the fact that Tancredo was a candidate at all, followed by the question: “Who’s Tom Tancredo ?”
