    I would prefer Spence Eccles. He isn't a politician per se, his family has done great things for our our state, and best of all he's a former Skyline Eagle!

    Former Rep. Ken Sumsion
    It pulled too many letters in.

    A couple of the suggestions left me mentally shouting No!
    You didn't give odds for Doug Wright. Perhaps you should have listed not at all likely.

    One of the reasons everyone has liked Lt. Gov. Greg Bell is he has been fair to all, even those that didn't agree with him.

    Kristen Cox, I don't know as well as some, but I have heard nothing bad about that suggestion.

    Brad Dee and Dan Liljenquist are both great suggestions, as are:
    Senate President Wayne Niederhauser, Rep. Brad Wilson, Sen. Stuart Adams, Sen. Evan Vickers, Rep. Jim Dunnigan.

    I think my favorite suggestion off of that list would be Rep. Jim Dunnigan. He would leave a big hole in the house as he chairs more than one committee. His knowledge of ObamaCare would be good as well.

    You should consider suggesting former Rep. Ken Summsion. He is a numbers guy. Good with technology. He has an amazing laugh. He would do well with fairness, land issues. It wouldn't hurt Gov. Herbert's chances if he runs again.
