Judge Affirms Tancredo for Colo. Ballot

Tuesday, 14 Sep 2010 06:19 PM


DENVER (AP) — A judge has ruled that third-party gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo can stay on Colorado's ballot in November.

Denver District Court Judge William Hood ruled Tuesday that the secretary of state was correct in certifying Tancredo as a candidate running on the American Constitution Party ticket.

The lawsuit by two Republicans claims that Tancredo violated state law when he got the party's nomination because he was not registered with the them for at least 12 months. The former congressman switched his affiliation from GOP.

Tancredo told the judge Monday that his party's bylaws trumped state law when he got his last-minute nomination in July.

He is running against Republican Dan Maes and Democrat John Hickenlooper.
