    I saw Mike speak at one of his Constitutional events and came away very impressed with his knowledge of the Constitution and how it should be followed. I am ready for a change from the so-called Conservative in Bennett and I think Mike would make a great Senator.

    Republicans continue to look for heretics when they should be looking for converts. I guarantee you that if you start running a slate of Glenn Beck Republicans the GOP is dead - Some other party will move in and take its place as the second major party. You will see hard right Republicans getting beat consistently and moderate Republicans winning some races. One district in Utah and a couple in the deep south being the exceptions.

    Our campaign advisors won 59 out of 61 races last year nationally. They helped Enid Greene win her race here in Utah when she ran. I trust them, and look forward to a vibrant campaign.

    This campaign has been vetted as one of 24 races nationally, including Chuck DeVore (CA) and Pat Toomey (PA) to be included in a fund to elect truly constitutional conservatives to Congress. If we can get these candidates elected, we will turn the course of this country.

    Fred Lampropoulos is a great businessman and should stay here running things.

    What we need in DC is someone to kick butt.

    I can't think of anyone running better at that than Cherilyn Eagar.

    While I do not agree with Bob Bennett on everything, I do agree that the way things are set up Utah would be shooting itself in the foot by a movement just to throw out all incumbants.

    Utah can't get ANYTHING passed (good or bad) without partnering and good will from other states! Part of our thought process has to be just that. Remember Utah is not especially "liked" by a lot of people and they consider our feelings as only a slight annoyance like a fly buzzing around. In fact your time might be well spent on how to make some changes in other states legislators.

    I believe this is true and the "throw all imcumbants out" itea may have some problems. Now a VIABLE 3rd party movement with some great canidates might have some merit.

    Another of my problems along with earmarks is the adding of many unrelated things to certain bills because they know they are not going to get voted down. A bill MUST be limited to a single issue! Without it we cannot know (let alone understand) what our legislators (state & Federal) are voting for and why.

  • Bennett Apologist
    Nov. 10, 2009 6:15 p.m.

    I have to agree with all of the Bennett apologists. Bennett is only a little bit liberal. He only wants to expand the role of the federal government a little (maybe by a trillion dollars or so through his proposed federal healthcare legislation). He only opposes the balanced budget amendment a little. And he isn't nearly as bad as many other senators, like say, Barbara Boxer, Ted Kennedy, and the like. So naturally, we should all get behind him enthusiastically because, whether we like it or not, he's now very powerful. And if there's one thing we know about powerful people, it's that we should all make them more powerful and more comfortable in wielding their power.

    Nov. 10, 2009 6:09 p.m.

    I think Senator Bennett is still very smart and savvy and has much to offer. I think he has gotten a lot of good done on a lot of issues. He hasn't been as conservative as my view on many things, but I don't know if any new comers would be either. I do worry about too long in one office and Senators get 6yr at a shot. In his case is he still young enough while still in office? In other words pros and cons.

    Nov. 10, 2009 3:22 p.m.

    You ignoramuses who say "throw all of the incumbents out" must live in a cave and are completely and utterly ignorant as far as our national Congressional process works. It is populist rhetoric to say "throw them all out," but is completely counterproductive and would result in total disorganization and anarchy. Since our Founding fathers set up Congress the way it did, they intended the Senate to be a stabilizing force in legislating. Power and influence are gained by length of tenure and respect, which translates into Committee positiosn. Bennett is very powerful for Utah -- the first Utahn ever to serve on Defense Appropriations Subcommittee, for example. IN OUR HISTORY!! So sure, throw him out. Let some upstart egoist millionaire who looks good on TV take Senator Bennett's place, And we'll all have to start over in the pecking order in Washington and Utah will be the worse for it. Wake up!

  • Should Bennet just drop out?
    Nov. 10, 2009 1:57 p.m.

    I would hope Bennett would just drop out. We want him to retire and we have some good choices.

    Too bad we can't make it Jan 2010 instead of Jan 2011 to change it.

    Wow...the whole race has been turned upside down by Shurtleff's departure (who was never qualified to have gotten past square one anyway). I have always liked Fred Lampropoulos. He is a down-to-earth, personable, truly-conservative individual with a common-sense approach to solving problems. As noted, Instant Runoff Voting (IRV) in the state convention did him and Utahns a great disservice through it's "convenient" buy quirky approach. Huntsman was the favored candidate by the party leaders...hard to combat.

    I've heard good things in the last week from young conservatives in the party about Mike Lee. I'm willing to give him a serious look.

    I like Cherilyn Eagar's positions on the issues. She appears to be a committed true conservative, is aggressive and has a bias for action. Although I like her spunk, I'd like to see her judgment mature a little and develop some gentility and finesse when interfacing with the press and her opponents. That could be remedied with more savvy campaign advisors.

    I would appear we have the makings of a fascinating race. Now if we could just rid ourselves of IRV!!

    I am for anyone who understands and defends our constitution, capitalism, and the real self-evident American values, all of which are not found in our current representatives. For the most part, they are enjoying the ride, while Rome burns, content to watch from the sidelines! I want someone that will pick up a pail and go to work, unafraid to stand up and fight for principle to the last! The failure of both the Republican and Democratic parties to deliver in the defense of constitutional principles is obvious. Maybe Mike Lee is different.

    Senator Bennett is a member of the minority party who at the moment has very little influence in the Senate. His committee assignments notwithstanding there is little he can do to stop anything the majority party wants to do. Suggesting that he can is nonsense.

  • Sterling
    Nov. 10, 2009 11:07 a.m.

    Bennett is YET ANOTHER Utah politician that likes to call himself "Republican" so he can get elected. Remember "Bailout Bob's" position on amnesty for illegals. Also, remember how he earned his name - "Bailout the Bankers" - quick, before its too late!!
    IF the Republican party nominates him again, I'm voting Demo, might as well, same thing!!

  • Mike Lee would rock
    Nov. 10, 2009 11:04 a.m.

    I've known Mike Lee for several years, and he will wow the delegates as they get to know him. He will be a great candidate and a terrific senator!

  • Good for Utah?
    Nov. 10, 2009 10:43 a.m.

    I am tired of the rhetoric against Bennett. Utah is under attack. Many would like to see all public lands in Utah as the playground for the East. Bennett is on all the right committees to stop this. Lee or any other challenger will not have: a) committee placement to stop these plans; or b) the seniority to negotiate in colleagues in the Senate to explain Utah's plight.

    While Bennett may not be ideal, he does an adequate job in protecting Utah's interests in Washington. By voting him out, we would essentially silence a strong voice in Washington DC.

  • ABB
    Nov. 10, 2009 10:40 a.m.

    The Anybody But Bennett (ABB) crowd is not large enough to support more than one legitimate challenger. Shurtleff was the frontrunner, and his departure has left a void. The more the ABB crowd is diluted between different candidates, the better it is for Bennett. He can set himself apart from the bickering crowd and look like the stateman that he is. Fred and Jason are the only potential challengers who have any chance whatsoever of knocking off Bennett at a convention. No one can beat Bennett in a 2010 Primary or General Election.

    For anyone considering running against Bennett there are a number of voters that are not satisfied with Senator Bennett's "conservative" voting record on illegal immigration issues. Nor are we fooled by his recent attempts to try and create a different image of his voting record on these issues with Utah voters.

    Add this to the bill healthcare reform he co-sponsored with a liberal democrat that many observers called "very little different than the Obama, Pelosi and Reed plans" and there are a number of conservative Republicans that would support, work for and contribute financially to a candidate with conservative views that would vote that way once they got to Washington.

  • No Joke
    Nov. 10, 2009 9:39 a.m.

    Let's get someone who really cares about the state, like Olene does. She had principal and support but lacked the funds. Hopefully we can get someone that doesn't have the means to buy the seat, which will work for the people and not the special interests.

  • Ted

    Fred L. is not the man. We have enough self-preservationist egos in DC without sending another. And not being able to shun or get rid of constituents like he does wives could be a real distraction for him!

    Mike Lee could well deserve a hard look. Having someone in DC who knows and respects the Constitution would be a refreshing change.

    Nov. 10, 2009 8:38 a.m.

    Fred's loss in 2004 was the first time that the preferential balloting really had a major effect on a big race. With preferential balloting, the voters list the candidates in order of preference. For Fred L. Fans, that meant that Fred was at the top of the list, with their number two choice listed below and so on down the line.

    When a candidate is knocked out, all of the votes that counted for that person then go to the number two person on the ticket. For instance, if you voted for Olene Walker as your number one choice, your vote counted for her each ballot count until she came up last with the fewest votes. Each ballot that had Walker at the top was then recounted giving the next candidate down the list those votes.

    Walker and Karras were both "education candidates" drawing from the same voter pool. Lampropolous and Huntsman were both businessmen drawing from the same pool. Lampropolous' split of the "business vote" was less than the entire "education vote" that got pooled once Walker came up last in the balloting.

    Fred's 2004 loss should not reflect poorly on him.

    This really isn't about whether Bennett is a nice man or not. It's about whether a person will stand up to the progressives in Congress. It seems that someone who understands the Constitution might have a better chance up upholding it. There needs to be no compromise on one thing when serving in the Senate. Their very PURPOSE is to uphold the constitution. Every piece of legislation they pass must fall within the constrictions of the Constitution. I think all the long term incumbents need a come uppance!

    Nov. 10, 2009 4:59 a.m.

    People are on the wrong track in selecting representatives. How nice they are is not even relevant and most of the time just a front for deception. Especially for those with mormon beliefs.

    My belief is that no lawyers should ever be allowed to run for representation in the administrative side of government. They are already prejudiced by judicial government and does not keep a separation of powers in government.

    Other requirements are honesty, openness, and willing to buck the system and think of the people first. If representatives would think of people first, party affiliatiion is not important. Party affiliation on means who will control them and the people. I want a representative that can discriminate and make decisions based on people needs and open and honest government.

    We can't depend on the news media for unbiased and honest reporting either. Power brokers already control them and what is reported in the news.

  • Good News!
    Nov. 10, 2009 4:33 a.m.

    I was a Fred L. fan when he ran for Gov., I think he will be great. He has principles and is Conservative!

    Many posters do not seem to get it, Republicans used to be conservative, but not so much any more. The problem with Sen.Bennett is he is NOT conservative enough. His position on Health Care, Immigration, and the Banking Mess(Freddie Fiasco) are out of touch with the MAJORITY of Utahans. He also (with Hatch) voted for Obama's Regulation Czar which is a BIG MISTAKE that doesn't get enough attention.

    A conservative state (which Utah IS) deserves to be represented by a true conservative!

  • Bennett is for Big Government

    Nov. 9, 2009 7:59 p.m.

    I am still angry about Bennett's support of the Bush, McCain,and Kennedy 2007 Comprehensive Immigration Reform Bill, Commonly referred to as the "Amnesty Bill." So, for me it is almost any port in a storm, but Bennett. I am a state delegate and I hope to be elected again in March, so that I will have several chances to vote against Sen. Bennett.

    I have met and discussed issues with Mrs Eagar, who seems a little shallow. I had a discussion last year with Mr. Lee, who I found to be very impressive. I also, have no problem with Mr. Lampropolous. I am beginning to feel better already! I am very pleased that Mr. Shurtluff has withdrawn, since he and Sen. Bennett are birds of a feather. He hope that both Mr. Lee and Mr. Lampropolous join the campaign for the Senate.

    What would be really choice, would be if Sen Bennett loses the the first round ballot at the convention, leaving Lampropolous, Lee, and Eagar.

    I pray to high heaven that this state will not have to suffer another term of Bennett or Eager. I don't necessarily dislike Shurtleff, but I see his withdrawal as a potential blessing of having someone REALLY good run. I loathe that folks think they have to vote for the lesser of two evils. The lesser of two evils is still voting for evil. And believe you me, Eager and Bennett are very, very much the same.

    This Lee guy sounds legit. I would like to learn more about him. Constitutional scholar? Sounds right to me. I don't care about experience. In fact, I'd say this vague thing we refer to as "experience" is looking worse and worse as time goes on (Bennett, Hatch, etc).

  • See Fred Run -Go Fred Go
    Nov. 9, 2009 5:07 p.m.

    Fred's convention loss to Huntsman was two-fold. The UEA default when Olene [siting Gov] went out & Convention Media Presentation difficulties- combined. Take away either and he would have been in the Primary. Easily overcome this time.
    Fred would be a great and a credible candidate. If Fred enters and is serious, depending on who he hires for his team- I think he wins.
    Fred has everything the delegates would look for to defeat Bennett, including the cash to stay up with him.
    Bennett must be wishing Shurtleff was still in the race. lol

  • Dear Cherilyn
    Nov. 9, 2009 4:33 p.m.

    It is very unseemly, not to mention counterproductive and downright weird, for Cherilyn Eager and her campaign staff to tell others that they can't enter the race against Bennett. But that is exactly what they are doing even in their comments to this article. If they are so unsure of themselves and their candidate that they have to resort to telling others that they can't get into the race, then they must lack confidence in their own message. Cherilyn: your job is to win us over as delegates by telling us why you think you're the right candidate, not why other possible challengers are not. We will decide on our own what we think of the others, and many of us find it very insulting when you try to do that for us. Even worse, when you focus on everyone else, it makes us think of you as an inferior commodity, and I'm sure you don't want to portray yourself that way. Aside from the damage your strategy might cause to the vitally important and growing movement to unseat Bennett, your strategy harms your own campaign far more than anything else.

    Lee has worked closely with judges, justices, and executive and legislative officials at the very highest levels of the state and federal government.

    Whatever. This is such a stupid position, and is only being articlated by Eager and her ilk.

    Just so you know, last June's convention (June was five months ago and was actually part of THIS year0 was an "Organizing" Convention where party officers were elected to two year terms. It has NOTHING to do with next year's "Nominating" convention. Furthermore, the two year term of every delegate who attended this year's convention will expire in March 2010 WHEN NEW DELEGATES ARE CHOSEN. Historically, 60 percent of each new crop of state delegates are first times. So the majority of delegates who met candidates at their booth's in June will not even be delegates next year.

    In March of this year Senator Bob Bennett was rated one of the ten most liberal Republicans in the Senate by Human Events based on the American Conservative Union Ratings for 2008. Why Bennett would pay money to convince voters he is Conservative is beyond me.

    Bennett abuses earmarks and spends in the 10% of the senate. He isn't conservative. Even his healthcare bill he sponsored had an abortion clause, requiring any insurance company to provide abortion coverage, except church owned companies.

    Bennett has to go. The question is who.

    turnout for a primary or general election is important, Too few and the incumbent or name gets it, and too many they do too.

    State gop convention with 95% turnout, that isn't going to matter.

    In june this year, with just under 2000 of the 3500 showing up in an off year, Bennett's reaction was poor, where 4 out of the 5 (now 3 of the 4) had booths and were seen by more than have the current delegates.

    Many thousands have heard Eagar there and at the rallys, lunches, meetings since.

    No one getting in now can totally make up for not being at last years convention, no matter the amount of time or energy spent.

    I think Fred would be an awesome candidate to run against Bennett. Eagar is a joke and Bridgewater isn't fiscally conservative. Run Fred Run!

    Bennett is the real conservative in this race and will school both of them.

    Mike Lee is an amazing Constitutional Scholar with Supreme Court experience. I hope someone like that runs for the senate.

    I'm in Id. but I say go for it.... all incumbents need to be booted for the way they have got rich off taxpayers and voted the way they have...I'm 100% for getting rid of all incumbents. I'm sure there are some that are honest and hardworking for their state and people they are supposed to represent..but who knows???? I just went down last Tues. and voted against every incumbent..only one was booted because people are stuck in the way they have always voted..too bad but I hope others will get it and send the message to ALL..we're sick of it...Thank you

  • an other attorney?

    we have about 2/3 of the US senate as attorneys now.
    Do we need another one?

    Mike Lee is a great guy, but we don't want to replace our only non-attorney too liberal businessman with an attorney that would be better used somewhere else.
