Both candidates showing pictures of themselves in rooms full of old white people.

That should make all democrats upset. Since they make race and age an issue every election cycle. Along with the fact that both candidates are old white people.

Whoever wins should make it a top priority to welcome Mormon Democrats back - people like the McKays, the McConkies, the Fausts, and so many others, like back before the GOP went off the rails and co-opted the church. Those were good times for Utah, when ideas and public service were important, when elections were competitive and power shifted back and forth. Utah is not served well by being so one-sided in political affiliation.

Go Pete! A more honest and decent Utah politician does not, and has never existed.


It's a bit depressing to hear someone calling Peter Corroon "old."

At least Peter was in an office for two terms. I'm sure his ideal goal is to be a lifetime politician. And that doesn't bother me if they serve two terms and move on to something else. I don't appreciate when someone sits in an office for 50 years and then cries when they're not re-elected (i.e. Bob Bennett). Even if I like the candidate, we really need term limits and keep the public on their toes, informed and voicing their vote every election cycle.

Otherwise you end up with Pelosi, Reid, Obama, Bohener, Hatch, Bennett etc.

Davis and Corroon are both excellent candidates for the job. The Utah Democratic Party will be in capable hands either way.
