Tom Tancredo strolled into the packed conference room in the back of a Wheat Ridge bowling alley on a recent Thursday evening and took a seat. He was the headliner at the monthly North Jeffco Tea Party meeting, but first the group of about 50 activists heard from school board candidates and a young man who wanted to introduce himself to the group because he was considering a run for Congress. There was also a chili supper coming up, and raffle tickets were on sale, with prizes including a quantity of gold.

If former U.S. Rep. Tom Tancredo decides to jump into Colorado's Republican gubernatorial primary, there's one step he won't have to take. Tancredo changed his registration from unaffiliated to Republican two weeks ago "just in case," he told Colorado Politics, although he said he's still weighing whether to get in the race.

On his last day as chairman of the Jefferson County Republican Party, Don Ytterberg had a few things to say. After welcoming several hundred members of the county GOP’s central committee — along with family, friends and a handful of Republican candidates — to the party’s biennial reorganization meeting on Saturday, Feb. 4, at Green Mountain High School in Lakewood, Ytterberg spoke to the crowd about his time at the helm.

DENVER — Today is the 150th day anniversary of The Hot Sheet! Pretty cool, huh? Thanks for being a loyal reader. In Colorado politics, who among us thought we would be writing so much about an elevator in a Colorado Springs hotel? Seriously? And, Mike Coffman continues to distance himself from Donald Trump, riding a careful strategy that is no doubt attached directly to polling data (smart, but too crafty by half for Democratic strategists not to take note and make issue - also smart). Democrats continue to take full advantage of an unprecedented GOP "toxic" coat tails situation by playing an ongoing game of connect the dots between the national political stage and the state one. The Colorado GOP, however, is not exactly inexperienced in maneuvering through this particular minefield. Lest we not forget, it was not all that long ago they had Dan Maes to deal with ... and Tom Tancredo ... well, they still have Tancredo. Read on for much, much more ...

DENVER — Good morning, and Happy Monday. Today is Happiness Happens Day, founded by the Secret Society of Happy People, an organization aiming to spread the joy of being happy, in 1999. But, former U.S. Rep. and bygone Republican Tom Tancredo ... he wasn't so happy, at least not yesterday.
