I wish him the best!

A change of Parties might be good! The Republicans seem to be too corrupt for their own good, and our good.

I wish Dee Smith would have been appointed by Gov. Herbert. Smith was defeated by Swallow in an election full of fraud. Under those circumstances, I'd feel better about Reyes running again for office. He too was defrauded by Swallow in the primary period.

Will he defend the laws passed in Utah? Would he defend the State in current or future legal battles protecting the definition of marriage, etc? Too many states have passed laws and found they have to live with a Democrat as AG who refuses. Answers need to prevail before rhetoric. Where does he or other candidates stand on the real issues?

After the last two AG's, a change would seem in order.

I have a concern, "Stormont manages his family's 6,000-acre farm and ranch in Texas."

Would we get a full-time AG or a part-time AG and part-time cowboy?

I think there is a real possibility of conflict of interests and extended time away from the office to manage the ranch. Travel costs would seem a bit much on the AG's salary and what if he accepts "rides" in private planes where all kinds of "business" is discussed?

I suggest he decide which horse to ride off on into the sunset and not attempt to ride both.
