He likened state government to a wooden platform that has been "infested by termites and it's collapsing. It's the whole platform, not just the last guy who stood up there."
It's time for Utah voters, he said, to give Democrats another look.
"They're smart. They're not ideological. They can solve problems. They're not part of this giant good ol' boy network that has run the state into serious problems," he said.
