Ward Churchill Foe Mounts Bid for Congress
In 2005, University of Colorado Regent Tom Lucero gained a smidgen of national attention for his role in investigating — and eventually stripping of tenure — Ward Churchill, a left-wing professor who called workers in the World Trade Center “little Eichmanns.” Lucero’s been running for Congress in the 4th District — Republican turf captured by Rep. Betsey Markey (D-Colo.) in 2008 — but attracting little attention. This ad is meant to fix that:
It took two whole years for the university to oust Churchill — longer than a term in Congress.
Churchill provided a comment on the ad to a student newspaper, the Daily Camera.
I can think of no one who better reflects the principles and integrity of Colorado Republicans than Tom Lucero. Who knows? He might even have what it takes to be the next Dick Cheney.
