This was written by a Republican delegate? Maybe there is hope after all.
My... that's a long wish list.I don't expect anything to
change. Especially not this guys whole wish list coming true. Some districts
may actually become even MORE conservative.Bottom line... we will
continue to see the person with the most funding win (incumbents). Except when
the incumbent has become so out of touch with their constituents that the voters
rebel and rally against the incumbent, and in those cases we are probably not
super-likely to pick a candidate who promises to spend even more, raise our
taxes, take more $$$ from Washington, etc. And it for sure doesn't
increase the chances of Democrats winning in Utah (if they don't change).
I think the CMV people are overplaying their hand. Utah's not
likely to shift left just because of CMV. It might even go more right.This guy can keep hoping he gets his wish list... but it probably
won't happen. Heck, even the Heber representative may find himself out of
office if his constituents don't agree with his list.
