LITTLETON, Colo. (AP) - Colorado gubernatorial candidate Tom Tancredo says a car knocked him off his motorcycle while he was riding in the Denver suburb of Littleton, but he suffered only scrapes and bruises.

Tancredo tells KMGH-TV in Denver that the car bumped his Harley Davidson on Sunday afternoon when he was riding home after getting a haircut.

Tancredo says he wasn't wearing a helmet.

The 64-year-old says his glasses and watch were broken and his motorcycle was badly damaged. He says he went to a hospital after doing a radio interview.

It's not clear whether any citations were issued.

Tancredo, a former Republican Congressman, is running for Governor on the American Constitution Party ticket. He faces Republican Dan Maes and Democrat John Hickenlooper.
