Back Roads to the White House: The Rivalry to Watch

Excerpted from this post at Back Roads to the White House

Sen. Sam Brownback vs. Rep. Tom Tancredo. As of today, there is
exactly one month until the Iowa Republican Party's non-binding but
all-important Ames Straw Poll. From now until then, pay no attention
to the so-called top tier candidates. The ones to watch are the folks
on the bubble -- the second-tier contenders who are still trying to
break through in the polls and survive as THE conservative alternative
to the "Rudy McRomneys" and the political actors to be named later.
Already, there's a heated, increasingly nasty rivalry developing
between Sen. Sam Brownback of Kansas and Rep. Tom Tancredo of
Colorado. It started last month and flared again on Wednesday. Here's
how it started... The Brownback-Tancredo rivalry goes back longer than
anybody has noticed. Both men are considered fairly solid social
conservatives.
