According to The Union Leader of New Hampshire, Congressman Tom Tancredo will be back in the state of the first Presidential primary on Saturday:
Tancredo, who may run for President, will participate in the Republican State Committee's "Issues and Answers Series Breakfast" at the Holiday Inn in Concord. Tancredo is gaining more attention as a maverick on the immigration issue. After a recent appearance in Colorado, the Denver Post reported that Tancredo likes to tell a story of being screamed at by George W. Bush's top political adviser, Karl Rove. The congressman had said that the blood of another terrorist attack would be on the hands of the President and Congress because they have failed to tighten the nation's borders.
According to Tancredo, Rove told him never to "darken the doorstep of the White House again." He wears the scolding as a badge of honor.
Also in New Hampshire this week was Democratic political consultant Mike Stratton, who oversaw Ken Salazar's U.S. Senate campaign and the failed Senate campaigns of Tom Strickland. According to The Union Leader, Stratton was advising New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson as he navigates the 2008 presidential waters in New Hampshire.
