As B4C reported last night, the end was near. Now it’s official: Tom Tancredo has dropped out of the race. He will be remembered (or not) for bringing the issue of illegal immigration to the forefront, as far as the GOP Presidential campaign was concerned. But his single note candidacy never really caught on, since his rivals adopted his rabid anti-illegal stance, leaving little to differentiate himself from the rest of the pack.
Two months ago, on October 28, 2007, The Tanc announced that he would not be seeking re-election for his congressional seat (Colorado’s 4th District), so his failed Presidential bid is Tancredo’s swan song. His legacy will be written by, or ignored by, historians. The Tanc is, literally, history.
According to the firecracker of the web, Michelle Malkin, Tom Tancredo declared victory before ending his campaign in a blaze of irrelevance.
“The Tancredo campaign has already won.”
What else can I say, but “good.” Take Hunter (who I do respect), Cox, Keyes and Paul with you. None of you have a ghost of a chance.
Update: What else can I say? “Good riddance.” This non-entity endorsed Mittens. If you have nothing wise to say, Tommy, just shut up. Good riddance to bad rubbish. Sell out. Traitor.
Update 2: Moar reaction from Race 4 2008, the sauce for the very latest campaign news.
Update 3: Upon reflection, the Romney endorsement makes sense in perverse sort of way. Both Tancredo and Mittens hired illegals to labor at their respective mansions. Hypocritical high fives all around!
