CDP Chairman on Tom Tancredo’s DisingenuousPandering‏

Colorado Democratic Party Chairman Rick Palacio sent out the following statement regarding Tom Tancredo’s new campaign image “Viva Tancredo: Live Your Own Life.”

“Tom Tancredo’s recent shift in campaign strategy, in which he attempts to appeal to Colorado Latinos, is simple pandering at best,” Palacio said.

“In the time he spent in Congress, then again during his failed candidacy for Governor, Tancredo has supported Arizona’s radical immigration laws; came out against immigration reform; called the DREAM Act, ‘amnesty”, and suggested that children born in the U.S. to undocumented immigrants should not be citizens.”

“After a career of xenophobic and hateful rhetoric, Tancredo must be delusional to think that a campaign slogan, in Spanish, somehow erases his past.”
