    David - couldn't agree with you more. If how Chris Stewart won the GOP nomination in April is any indicator of his character and legislative approach, I'd be running the other way and voting for Jay Seegmiller. I am not in love with Seegmiller's "union" ties but at least he has a track record of working across the aisle. Stewart is just pure arrogance.

    I am concerned with the uncompromising approach to governing and legislating that has taken hold in the country. I reminisce the days of Reagan when he worked with Tip O'Neal to improve America. Clinton was good at working across the aisle after his liberal efforts failed.

    I worry that Stewart will be another uncompromising Congressman. Polarization, sound bites, and failure to reach across the aisle to get things done are hurting our great nation.

    I have met Chris Stewart and asked him questions. I do not feel he is the only choice in November. In fact, he may be the wrong choice.

    I can't comprehend or understand how a Q & A session where questions are provided in advance and the candidates are given time to come up with a politically correct response.

    Q & A should be called what it is and not a debate. A debate is where you stand each candidate in front of an audience and let them draw blood and show their convictions and honor of serving the people they represent. Let the candidates bring their own guns to the pulpit and battle each other. We are tired of civil lies and for long enough, it has proven a failure in leadership and government, its time for aggressive accountability and responsibility from these public "servants".

    This fakery is stupid and meaningless and should be abolished.

    Chris Stewart is the only man running with real leadership experience. There is no better training program than the United States Military. Chris offers real solutions, not empty rhetoric. He has a step by step plan that will push us back from this ledge we teeter on. Chris represents Utah values, and having met with him, and grilled him on all the issues important to me, I endorse and support Chris for Congress. As far as I'm concerned, he is the ONLY choice in November.
