Congressman Tom Tancredo has joined the growing field of Republicans candidates by announcing that he has formed an exploratory committee.
"I am writing to you as a fellow believer in the cause of securing America's borders. My purpose is to obtain your support as I embark upon a path that may lead to the Republican nomination for the Presidency of the United States," Tancredo says in a letter to the American people, which he put on his new campaign site.
He goes onto say, "I am also considering this campaign because I believe the Republican Party and its leaders must recommit themselves to limited, smaller government; fiscal responsibility; and honesty in public office."
Tancredo has been given A ratings from conservative groups such as the National Right to Life Committee and the Family Research Council.
