"The 4th District is stocked with high-profile politicians on both sides of the aisle".

High profile politicians? I've had enough of those. Let's get some new blood in there. . . . something to shake it up in Washington. Business as usual has not gotten it done. It hasn't accomplished ANYTHING other than widespread bickering and dividing our nation even further. Let's give this guy a chance. If we send somebody reasonable back to Washington, perhaps he can start healing our nation's wounds and working to move our nation forward.

New District #4 means new growth in Utah. Along with that new growth we need new blood in Congress. Cobb is a well educated lawyer who knows how to listen and negotiate with people to accomplish the tasks at hand. He will work hard to get our nation back on track and working together as one nation. Yes Cobb is the underdog now, but watch him come out on top.

I know Jay Cobb and he is a good honest man. We need a new face and someone who will get the job done and follow through. Jay Cobb has my vote!

What? No saber-rattling? No threats against the federal government? No "my way or the highway?" I don't know what to think if a Republican running in the 4th District isn't demonizing Uncle Sam while holding his hand out for dollars at the same time.

Bah, humbug!

We don't need more lawyers in Congress, especially if they are connected to the likes of ex-Senator Bob Bennett, and already tainted by time hanging around the failed policies of the past in Washington.

We need demonstrated fire-breathing real Conservatives in Congress willing to make the tough choices to slash spending, cut the size of the bloated federal government and its bureaucracy, and lift restrictions to restore freedom and personal responsibility.

I am sure that Jay Cobb is a nice guy, and can do many good things, but he is not what we need in Congress. Especially with three excellent candidates, Steve Sandstrom, Carl Wimmer and Mia Love already in the race. Any one of them would be better than Nancy Pelosi's pal Jimmy Matheson.

I want to know what he would do to protect the country from the excesses of the far right including the tea party (who appear to care MUCH more for corporations and the wealthy than they do for the common people of the country). From what I've seen in this article, he would be just one more right winger. In other words, Same Stuff but Different Politician. Sandstrom, Wimmer, Love and any far right authoritarian like them (which appears to include Cobb) -- NO THANKS!

He probably doesn't stand a chance. He sounds {Gasp} Moderate!

Can't have a Moderate in Utah.
