A very large group of the Utah legislature formally endorsed Mitt Romney about
June or July of 2011. That is more than the 14 that are in the photo with him
that was taken then.That was long before his nominee was a done
deal. They should be able to tout that. I don't remember any democrats on
that list or in the photo.
Huh? Utah voted 72% for McCain in the last election and will probable vote a
little more this election for Romney. With that will be a high number of
party-line votes so people don't have to select each candidate.Just having an 'R' after your name in a Utah election is almost a
guarantee of election. Since there is essentially no choice, people just look
at the ballot and know who will be elected because the outcome was determined
months before. Also, with Utah the most Red state in the land (even beating its
Southern bretheren, it is known as Tea Party Nation.
It's a one party state, more even than the old soviet union we used to
snicker about in high school. Not much externally will affect utah campaigns.
