Before the New Year when we posed our 2008 questions, we asked who would take the mantle for the "Steve King wing" of the party on immigration. Clearly if Tancredo gets in the race it would be him. Known almost entirely for his strong stance on immigration, the whole purpose of a Tancredo run would be to bring immigration to the forefront.
It's hard to say which of the Big 3 would benefit/suffer most from a Tancredo entry into the race.
Beaumont says that Tancredo will be in Iowa from today until Monday with book signings in Council Bluffs and West Des Moines tomorrow.
