I just saw a political ad for Jim Matheson with his mother. I have two objections to both of them.

First, Jim Matheson doesn't live in the 4th District, the district he is running in. Representing anyone is not on his agenda — winning political office anywhere is.

Second, Norma Matheson was the only Utahn who stood in Arizona with then-President Bill Clinton when he declared the Grand Staircase Escalante a national monument.

The Mathesons are devoted to the Democratic Party, not to Utahns.
