Tancredo likely to launch White House bid Monday

WASHINGTON (CNN) - Rep. Tom Tancredo, R-Colorado, is expected to officially announce his campaign for the GOP presidential nomination in Iowa Monday morning, according to a source close to the congressman.

Tancredo, who has been a leading proponent of a strict overhaul of the nation’s immigration laws, is scheduled to appear on the "Mickelson in the Morning" radio program in Des Moines to make what his campaign described as "an important announcement regarding his presidential intentions." Alan Moore, a Tancredo campaign spokesman, declined to elaborate further.

The five-term congressman formed a presidential exploratory committee in January, though he has not yet filed a statement of candidacy with the Federal Election Commission.
