Will CO Tea Party Knock Off Beauprez?

As news spread last night that Tea-Party Republicans in Virginia ejected House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, Arapahoe Country Tea Party activists--here in Colorado--at their monthly meeting were hearing from Republican gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo.

Tancredo's GOP primary opponent, Bob Beauprez, was a no-show.

Celebrating Cantor's victory with bravado and theme music ("We Are the Champions") on the air this morning, KLZ radio-host Randy Corporon talked about last night's Arapahoe County Tea Party meeting:

"Bob Beauprez didn't show up. But Tom Tancredo did. He was an unannounced visitor. He's been hitting a lot of Tea-Party and Liberty groups as the meetings pop up. And so...with Bob Beauprez not showing up at the Arapahoe Tea Party meeting, Tom Tancredo had some extra time to get his message out there."

Corporon, who's Chairman of the Arapahoe County Tea Party group, said on air that people at the meeting discussed "how to take advantage of the monumental event" of the Cantor defeat, and they decided that they need to get the message out to Republican candidates that "what happened to Eric Cantor can happen to you."

Bob Beauprez wasn't there to hear the message, but Tancredo was.
