Malkin, who is based in Colorado Springs, called Tancredo “a principled, proven public leader committed to individual and economic liberty and our national sovereignty.” Tancredo is one of seven Republicans running for governor and a chance to unseat Democrat John Hickenlooper in November.
When Tancredo ran for governor in 2010, Malkin’s name surfaced as a possible running mate, according Westword’s Patty Calhoun.
“He’ll protect gun owners, entrepreneurs, and families from the encroachment of Nanny State bureaucrats,” Malkin said in her announcement supporting Tancredo. “He’ll fight both big government and big business special interests. He’ll turn back Obamacare and Common Core. And he’ll continue to battle the scourge of illegal immigration at our borders, in our neighborhoods, and on our economy.”
