COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. -- Gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo held a political rally Monday in Colorado Springs.

The candidate spoke about the economy and the recession, saying what matters most in the upcoming election is gaining and keeping momentum.

The third party candidate also said he's basically a Republican and believes the race is down to just him and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper.

"Any vote for anybody else besides me is a vote for Hickenlooper," Tancredo said. "Nobody else is in this race but the two of us at this present time."

Republican candidate Dan Maes is also running for governor. However, recent polls show Maes has only 12 percent of voters on his side.

Meanwhile, Hickenlooper is projected to have 42 percent of the vote, and Tancredo has 38 percent.
