Former GOP congressman Tom Tancredo will seek a third-party nomination to enter the Colorado governor's race.
Tancredo's spokeswoman says he plans to issue a statement later Monday about seeking the nomination of the American Constitution Party so he can enter the race. Tancredo says Republican candidates Scott McInnis and Dan Maes have no chance of beating Democrat John Hickenlooper in November and he needs time to mount a campaign.
Tancredo will register his new party affiliation with the Colorado Secretary of State and the party will form a vacancy committee to put him on the ballot by the end of the week.
