This is awesome! We've got to show people we support Morgan Philpot and encourage him to get back into another Congressional Run. Morgan ran a great campaign last year, with a 25% swing against Matheson. 2012 is his year!

Of course he's running, and he'll win too! If the polls are correct about Matheson being such a strong candidate against Hatch or Chaffetz, that just shows how strong of a candidate Philpot is considering he almost beat Matheson with a fraction of the money and being a relative no namer. Philpot is a force to be reckoned with for sure!

We need good people like Morgan Philpot in DC. He's a man who stands for liberty! Run Morgan run!

Great news. We need sincere and genuine people seeking public office. Morgan is one of those individuals who doesn't have a political bucket list, but rather a strong commitment to bring about substantial change to limit government and increase personal liberty and accountability.

I would happily support Morgan in another run for any office. He is a great guy and a man of honor and honesty. We need people like him in office! Go Morgan!

Morgan is one of the few people who 'get it'. He is a man of integrity and I would trust his vote back in DC anytime. It will be interesting to see where the lines are drawn!

So great to here! Morgan is a man with real integrity, and some one who can make a difference in Washington.

Philpot did a good job in the Legislature, and is a solid conservative who stands on principle, not polling, like some politicians.

Unlike Matheson and Hatch, Philpot will have the same views in Washington that he does in Utah, and we can count on him to work hard.

I hope he can beat Matheson this time, because we certainly need someone in Washington to cut spending, and he will do it and Matheson will not. (And that means real cuts from current year numbers, not the phone inflated "baseline" budget games that Congress plays.)

I'd vote for him...again.

I wouldn't support him for dog catcher. We need a rational moderate in Congress, not another right wing fanatic. He's the LAST person that Utah and the United States needs.

I wouldn't support Morgan Philpot if he ran for congress. I would support him if he ran for governor, he could do a good job as governor. In fact, just about anyone could do a better than Gov Herbert.

Go Morgan. We definitely need to get Matheson out of there. Since the Democrats went into minority, it has been made more clear that he is more loyal to his Democrat leadership than to his constituency. He voted against repeal of Obamacare even though his constituents are opposed to it. That shows where his heart is.

I am a little suspect of Morgan's intentions. He seems like an opportunist to me.

I would not support Morgan. Look at his work associated with the billboard industry; and industry in Utah that has received far more special treatment than any other commercial enterprise and is virtually free of local control. Businesses cannot do whatever they want when their actions directly impact communities in a negative light.

Utah is changing, and there is a growing need to have moderate representation at all levels in government. Neither an overly liberal or overly conservative candidate does not represent the growing moderate segment of Utah.

Go for it Morgan. If you had been given a few more bucks to spread your message last time Mathison would have been history.

Morgan, meet Merrill Cook...
