Since when is a 55% to 45% victory considered "Narrow"? That's a pretty significant difference, percentage-wise.

I sat in on a couple of small, private home meetings where Ben McAdams came to speak and found him knowledgable, personable, and warm. And as an active LDS Democrat, it should have been diificult for uber-Republicans to say he doesn't "represent thier values" (ugh!).

Finally, can we now find out why the "Mason Dixon Poll" last week showed Mr. Crockett with a huge lead?

54% to 45% is now considered a "narrow victory?"

A 10 point margin of victory is a "narrow victory"? Only at a Republican newspaper....

Thank God. Too bad Hatch didn't get sent packing, but we'll take Matheson, County Guv, and oh yeah...President of the United States!

the writers at the DN are clearly suffering from the beating the GOP took last night.


As far as our every day lives are concerned, this is the biggest news of the night. I will sleep much better tonight knowing Mark Crockett is not in a leadership position in Salt Lake County.
