Krusty Konservative: Katching Up
Excerpted from this post at Krusty Konservative
... I know that some bloggers and especially the media like to glance over kandidates like Tom Tancredo and Tommy Thompson, but these are the guys who will make a big impact on the Iowa Straw Poll and the Iowa Caucus if you ask me. ... Tancredo's announcement on Jan Mickelsen's radio show kaught me off guard, but I think it was a great idea and a very different way to announce that you are running for President. Mickelsen's audience is exactly the type of people who would respond favorably to Tancredo's stance on illegal immigration and his strong konservative positions on social issues. ... I've read and was told that Thompson turned out 350 to 400 people to their mid day announcement in Des Moines. I think that's a big number. Sure its not what Rudy Giuliani, John McCain, or Mitt Romney have had but it's close, and it's a lot more than other second tier kandidates could draw in Iowa. I don't think Tancredo, Brownback, Huckabee, or Duncan Hunter could put together an event that large.
