Tancredo announces presidential campaign exploratory committee

Colorado Republican Rep. Tom Tancredo, an outspoken opponent of illegal immigration, announced Tuesday that he is forming an exploratory committee for a possible presidential campaign.

After a weekend trip to Iowa, Tancredo said voters there told him other presidential candidates don't share their views. Tancredo has said immigration would be a central issue if he does run.

Tancredo met with activists and GOP leaders in Iowa. "Too many people believe that their leaders in Washington have forgotten them," Tancredo said after the visit. "I want to make sure that their voices are heard in the upcoming election."
