This press release was just sent to me from the Tancredo campaign director in NH:
Presidential Candidate Tancredo Calls for Rep. Paul to be Included in Iowa Presidential Forum
(Washington, D.C.) â€“ Presidential candidate Congressman Tom Tancredo (R-CO) today called on the organizers of the Iowa presidential forum to allow the participation of Congressman Ron Paul (R-TX).
â€œWhile I donâ€™t see eye-to-eye with Rep. Paul on all issues, he is a respected Congressman, a former presidential candidate, and a man with strong convictions and the courage to express them,â€ Tancredo said, â€œThe Republican party is better because he is one of us and he has earned the right to be in all presidential forums and debates.â€
The Presidential Forum is scheduled for Saturday, June 30th in Des Moines, Iowa. It is being co-sponsored by the Iowa Christian Alliance and Iowans for Tax Relief. Attendees include Rep. Tancredo, Sen. Brownback, Rep. Hunter, Gov. Thompson, Gov. Huckabee, and Gov. Romney. Invitations were also extended to Sen. McCain, Mayor Giuliani and Gov. Gilmore.
Tancredo concluded, â€œI hope the organizers of this forum will reconsider and extend him an invitation.â€
Thanks Tom! I always knew you were a pretty decent guy...
