As seen on these pages, Tom Price recently released his list of endorsements. An interesting detail is that, of the 64 endorsers listed , 63 (including both Senators and the full complement of GOP Representatives) are from the state of Georgia. The odd man out, as Erick briefly mentioned, is Rep. Tom Tancredo of Colorado.
While it’s not unusual for a Member to garner the endorsements of his fellow Congressmen, including those from other states, it’s interesting that only one is listed in this disclosure.
Rumor has it that Tancredo’s support is being touted so highly because illegal immigration is one of Price’s key issues, and Tancredo is the Congressional authority on that matter.
My gut feeling is that there could be a bit of an attempt here to counter challenger John Konop’s vocal stance on the issue, as well.
