Scott Howell will be receiving my vote in November. Two reasons are most critical:

Honesty. Scott is an honest man. I'm not sure it can be said about the incumbent.

Good sense. Scott displays it in ample quantities. Again, I'm not sure about the incumbent. Many of his agendas defy even the most simple tests for common sense, much less good sense.

If Hatch was so concerned about "Taxmaggedon," why didn't he join in any efforts to solve the problem? Instead, with his mindless toeing of the party line and his cowtowing to the Tea Party, he ADDED to them in big measure.

Hatch's hypocrisy is nauseating.

Scott Howell is a decent family man but you'd be hard pressed to find any knowledgeable adult in Utah who would give him a ghost of a chance of winning the upcoming election. Neither he or Hatch have been wasting their money on campaign ads that I'm aware of.

It's great to see Scott Howell respond so quick. I posted earlier to the Hatch article that I'll be voting for Scott Howell. This just gave me another reason to vote for Howell, he's more quick and agile. Guess that's the case when you're younger and have the energy to care for the people of Utah.

I think it's funny to see people say that Howell has no chance to win. I for one can see him beating Hatch, then Utah can start to show that we care to change Washington and we'd get rid of a 36 year senator and his seniority for the sake of progress.

We need to drop all the Bush tax cuts and deal with the consequences. Yes, it will hurt a little, but in the end it will mean a dramatic cut in the national deficit. Which means a much stronger dollar and more trust in America.
Since neither of these candidates seem to get that, I will be voting for someone else.

Hatch needs to be retired. He is one of those eastern liberals with Ted Kennedy and pals with Mohammad Ali when it suits him. I'm voting for Scott. Hatch has been in the senate since I was in high school 36 years ago. He said of ted moss, what do you call a three term senator, you call him home. Well hatch you lying dog. Go to your retirement home. In Pennsylvania where you came from.

Howell and his colleagues have never met a budget crisis they couldn't borrow their way out of. Sovereign debt is not a problem. Don't worry, be happy.
