Erik Aadland Headlines Campaign Kickoff on 9/11 with Right Wing Extremist Tom Tancredo
Denver, CO — This Saturday, on the 20th anniversary of 9/11, Erik Aadland is headlining his campaign kickoff with Tom Tancredo, an anti-immigrant, right wing extremist who advocated for bombing islamic holy sites, including Mecca, and spread dangerous and racist rhetoric on immigration.
“By inviting Tom Tancredo to headline his first official campaign event, Erik Aadland has made it clear that his campaign is more focused on division and hate than representing Coloradans. Does he align with Tancredo’s right wing agenda and proposal to bomb holy sites and potentially kill millions of people?” – Nico Delgado, Colorado Democratic Party spokesperson
Even though Tancredo, a fierce proponent for closing the GOP’s primaries, is kicking off Aadland’s campaign, Aadland has yet to comment on whether the GOP primary should be closed to unaffiliated voters. The GOP’s central committee meeting will be held on September 18th.
