In my opinion Chris Herrod and Margaret Dayton, were by far the best candidates.
I live in Deidre Henderson's senate district, but I would never vote for
her, because she is more willing to wheel and deal with Utah senate leadership
than listen to constituents. She would do the same in D.C. I don't trust
herAs for Chris Herrod, what you see is what you get. Liberals,
open border supporters, along with the wealthy political elite may not like his
conservative views very much, and would find him hard to manipulate. Chris will
represent the conservative voters in the 3rd CD not the special interests. John Curtis is a good mayor and manager, but will support amnesty for
illegal aliens and other special interests groups and not really the average
conservative 3rd CD working voter. John has not yet shed many of his liberal
democrat philosophies from his past when he was a democrat. He became a
republican because it is impossible for a democrat to be elected in Utah County
Curtis is not without his warts. I was not impressed with the way he handled the
firing of the police chief.
The far right republican state delegates have done it again. They continually
overlook who they should be representing who are the moderates of the party
for a far right ultra conservative. I know from first hand experience being a
moderate state delegate many times that most delegates have no interest in what
the majority of the party want. I predict that Curtis will win big in the
primary ;much like Governor Herbert did against Johnson who was the convention
choice last time.
Chris is a man who who will support border security, vote for tax cuts and get
rid of Obamacare. If you want socialism don't vote for him.
IMHO we need somebody that is willing to reach across the aisle and Curtis has
proven that he has that type of "personality." He is a proven leader
who has bettered his city by embracing solid growth and business models while
embracing diverse ideas and diverse peoples.
Curtis will win. If Ainge were not in the race he would win easily. After he
wins, the caucus convention crowd will be forced to finally admit that the
antiquated system puts too much decision making in too few hands and that the
large majority of Utahns, both GOP. And Democrat, aren't buying it anymore.
Would like to hear why the party is in debt and cash strapped?
Chris Herrod will make a great congressman! He is a proven conservative that
isn't afraid to stand up for Utahans.
I am glad Herrod won. A proven conservative. John Curtis seems to run on
personality. We need gravitas in this time.
Looks like a runaway.If you thought the Utah delegates were warming
to amnesty, think again.Good for Chris. Stay strong.
With today's political climate I almost feel bad for any of these qualified
individuals running for Jason Chaffetz seat in Congress. It is an angry world
out there that we will be sending one of these good people in a short time. But
it is necessary. We need to be well represented by one of our best back in
Washington D.C. My best to the candidates.
