A poll by ConservativesBetrayed.com of 525 persons attending the recent Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) in Washington, D.C. showed that when asked if various candidates for President, if elected, would govern as a conservative, Tom Tancredo led the pack with 88.1% of respondents saying yes. McCain was last with 16.8%
"From the beginning, we've had no intention to run as a third-party candidate, ever, and we'll never consider that because he's a Republican, period," said T.Q. Houlton, spokesman for the newly formed Tancredo for a Secure America Exploratory Committee.
Tancredo, R-Littleton, filed paperwork creating the committee so he can raise money and decide whether to follow through with a long-shot run for the Republican presidential nomination in 2008.
In numerous past statements, Tancredo has said he is and always will be a Republican. Still, the FEC filings list his treasurer as Kenneth C. McAlpin, who had been treasurer of the Virginia Freedom Party, a state Reform Party spin-off, until it disbanded in 2004.
