Perhaps Mr Wadhams needs to step down and hope his replacement can do a better job of vetting the candidates. Tom Tancredo is winning this race because the head of the Republican party did not do his job and that failure could cost his employer big bucks. If I didn't do my job and cost my employer big bucks I would be fired.

If Tom Tancredo is elected, and I think he will be, that will send a very strong message to BOTH parties that we are tired of politics as usual. We need candidates that will help our State and our Country instead of lining the pockets of the favored few with our money. If we can't get them from the two major parties we will go outside the party.

If Maes is going to get less than 10% of the vote, and it looks like they will, perhaps they should do a few things -

* Maes should drop

* Maes and Repubs should throw full support behind Tanc

* The Colorado Repub Party should re-evaluate their stance on issues

Some Repubs think that because the TEA Party and the people are furious with Dems, that we will vote Repub by default. Not so! We are going with those that reflect our ethics and priorities.
