Colorado: Constitution Party Candidate comes in Second – Triples Republican

November 13, 2010

According to the Independent Political Report, the American Constitution Party has achieved “major party status” in Colorado while the GOP barely missed the ignoble designation of being relegated to a “minor party”.

What brought this about? In the 2010 Gubernatorial Election, the presumption that a Republican candidate is the only legitimate choice for conservatives because they are “electable” and Constitution Party candidates are “spoilers” was literally turned on it’s head.

The Election was won by a liberal Democrat — the mayor of Denver who received just over 50% of the vote.
Coming in second was Constitution Party nominee Tom Tancredo — who got in the mid 30% range. He possibly could have one if votes, attention and support hadn’t been diverted to the Republican nominee Dan Maes — who was a distant third with just over 10%

The Constitution Party is has begun electing candidates across the country for state and local office. The tide is turning and the Democrat-Republican Duopoly is being broken.

    Tancredo may not have won, but the Nevada Independent American Party did elect 4 people to local office.

    The Utah CP also elected one candidate to a non-partisan office in Morgan County as well.
