    I think Mia Love would be the best choice for representative.

    If the Eagle Form supports Wimmer, it's just one more reason to vote against him.

    How long has Ruzyka been Eagle Forum President? Why does no one else ever take a turn? Not being sarcastic here--they are genuine questions of mine?

    Carl Wimmer was a huge supporter of HB 477. Carl Wimmers was the first to hug Rep Garn after he quit the house in the hot tub scandal. Wimmer was also key in trying to undercut justice in the case of the free capitalist ponzi scheme. The above are but three reasons NOT to send Carl Wimmer back to Washington.

    Never heard of the group so they must all be his personal stock of supports who are as radical as he is. Wimmer is a l-o-s-s-e-r and a an insult to government and as a representative. Wimmer is a man of hate, not justice or common sense or patriotism.

    It's time this state (Utah) start putting more emphasis on patriotism and spine in our candidates at all levels of government.

    Rep. Wimmer biggest competition for this 4th congressional race is within the GOP and it appears he has the edge over Rep. Sandstrom in fundraising (400 donors and over $150,000 donations) and endorsements (Senator Lee, Rep. Herrod, and Eagle forum) even though both have hired political consultants (who actually know each other supposedly from their association with National Republican Congressional Committee and running or advising previous political campaigns). If Congressman Matheson enters the 4th race than the GOP candidate will have a competitive race in the general election, otherwise it will stay within than GOP. Sandstrom is a successful businessman and took time to hike Mount Everest earlier this year and than enter the race in by putting $50k into his campaign and fund raise $12k. It sure appears he and his paid consultant has a lot more work to do when compared to Wimmer and his consultant in drawing out the GOP delegates for State GOP Convention and GOP voters in the GOP Primary.

    Not sure whether to be happy that he would no longer be in the state legislature or cringe at Utah being seen through his actions and words.

    @DN Subscriber

    Is he running against Jim Matheson?

    Lots of cheap shots from the opposition party.

    Wimmer would not be my first choice, but he is better than any one of about 400 members of Congress there now, including Jim Matheson!

    Hmm... more pro life supporters.

    How long until a woman who has a miscarriage is put on trial for murder?

    So we get a first look at who will make decisions for carl, although he received most of his orders from the NRA it seems last cycle.

    So what exactly is it that carl does for a living? It's very unclear.

    One more reason to vote the other way.
