Politically Speaking: Tancredo drops

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

The long subject line of the email showed "NRCC Chairman Tom Cole's
Statement on Congressman Ton Tancredo's R....." Forgive me if I confess
I thought Republican Tancredo might be dropping out of the 2008
presidential race. But that's not what it was. A day after he
campaigned in Odebolt, Iowa, and then today in Storm Lake, Tancredo
announced he would retire from his congressional position at the end
of the current term, which ends January 2009. Tancredo has held
Colorado's 6th District congressional seat for more than 30 years. As
he pursues the presidency, Tancredo, whose candidacy is staked to
get-tough immigration policy reform, is polling in the low single
digits in Iowa. Two Republicans have given up their quest for the
presidency -- Tommy Thompson in August and Sam Brownback on Oct. 19.
