Skip to comments.Tancredo to get out?

Tom Tancredo has scheduled a press conference in Des Moines tomorrow afternoon to make a "major announcement regarding the campaign," according to a media advisory his campaign sent out today.
Asked whether Tancredo intended to drop out of the race, his congressional spokesman, TQ Houlton, said he didn't know. But Houlton didn't affirm that Tancredo was staying in and directed calls to the campaign.
A campaign spokesman didn't immediately reply to an email or voice mail.
Tancredo will appear at the Des Moines Marriott tomorrow at 2:00 Central, according to the advisory.
Despite the fervor Iowa Republicans have over Tancredo's pet issue, immigration, the Colorado congressman has not seen a commensurate bump in the polls. And even though he's run a couple of provocative ads warning about the security threat of illegal immigration, his numbers have remained in the low single-digits.
Perhaps most notably, Tancredo's close friend, Rep. Steve King, passed over his colleague and threw his support behind Fred Thompson this week. King and Tancredo have worked closely on immigration and many in Iowa thought King would not endorse as long as Tancredo was in the race.
A source close to King said they knew of the press conference for tomorrow but didn't know what Tancredo would announce.
Easy enough to find out, just check and see if reservations have been cancelled.
I don’t know what reservations to check.
He'd have speaking engagements, each of which would require him to rent a venue.
True. But I do not know his schedule.
I’ll take that over an endorsement for one of the ‘top tier’
All of the candidates should step down when their continued presence in the race is counterproductive to their ideological agenda. If Tancredo thinks now is that time for him then I admire him for being wise enough to see this and patriot enough to put the country first.
Ditto. I was impressed with him during the debate, and at least he was there to push the issue.
He’s being sued by the ACLU /sarc
He’ll get behind Fred. Good!
Can’t wait to see what it’s all about.
Flights, hotels, meeting halls, just check Tancredo’s website for a list of events and their location. Pretty straight forward from that point.
The fact that his website is not responding is perhaps a clue....
Go ahead. And get back to us.
Not that big of deal for me to do it, I was just sayin....(chuckle)
I would not count on that, but I reckon it is a possibility
“Cant wait to see what its all about.”
I just hope he doesn’t go off the deep end like Gilchrist did.
Whatever it is, he’s managed to get more press than usual.
