The reasons to want someone as AG that is willing to face the voters next fall out way this caretaker argument. There were 7 candidates that answered questions tonight. A bit more on what was said and the 10 questions asked and answered by each and the opening and closing remarks would have been good to cover.

Instead of promoting the caretaker idea.

I agree with cleaning house. Where were these folks when all the data went missing? I don't recall hearing a thing.

Many of the candidates showed relevant experience, poise, and conservative values and temperament. However, there's no question the democrats will have a heyday next November with any candidate who has ties of any kind to the Swallow questions. A caretakership would give up all the possible advantages of incumbency, likely leading to a democrat win. The republicans' best hope is to elect an absolutely untainted and inspiring outsider who can clean house and garner a year of stature in the office. A tall order indeed--but this is going to be a tough year. Utah voters have proven plenty willing to elect democrat AGs in the recent past.

The only way to clean house is to remove the Republicans.
