DENVER (AP) — Former Republican congressman Tom Tancredo, who quit the party last year to run as a third-party candidate for Colorado governor, is headed back to the GOP.
Tancredo told The Associated Press Tuesday he is coming back to the GOP "because they're the only game in town."
Tancredo said his decision to join the American Constitution Party was opportunistic, but he and the party had an understanding that he would not stay.
GOP state chairman Dick Wadhams, who clashed publicly with Tancredo over criticism of the Republican Party, said everyone is welcome to join the Colorado GOP. He refused to say whether he thought Tancredo would be welcomed back.
