    Oh by the way for the help of Middle-Conservative. That is why caller ID was invented. So you can ignore the calls and not answer them.

    I've gotten the same democratic survey three times. I answer the same way. You'd think that they would quit calling me because I indicate I'm voting Republican. They don't. I guess that survey likes the punishment I give them.

    Howell is using a New York company to make his Robo-Calls? He could have at least contracted with a Utah company to provide that service. Who is out of touch?

    No, I just ignore them. It is different when you have to answer your phone only to find out that you've just been contacted by a robot. We're just not into the telemarketing hassle.

    Some of your comments are lame... especially the idiotic ones saying Howell is out of touch.

    Go ahead and scratch for any reason to justify your vote for 36 years of being out of touch, compared to one day of someone else's. They wouldn't have happened had we not had the devastation that was going on back East. One more thing, I've gotten plenty of Robo Calls from Hatch, Mia Love and Romney endorsing Mia Love. It happens everywhere, this is election season.

    At least Howell is serving pancakes. Can't say that about the other candidates that bombard my phone.

    World to Scott Howell: We don't like robocalls .... period!!

    JWB is correct. You are out of touch with Utah voters.

    Well I got the call and I live in the Roosevelt-Vernal area. Thank goodness I was already awake. Please stop the calls!! I went and early voted because I knew that the polls were going to be busy and I did not want to wait in the long lines.

    Scott Howell advertisements berate Senator Hatch for his being out of touch with the voters.

    This shows that Scott Howells campaign didn't do a finalizing of their significant number of calls knowing that the company in New York was having a storm.

    That is not the kind of planning and monitoring of what happens in Utah and for Utahns that we need for a potential run for the Senate.

    You hire a staff to make those arrangements and that person, along with the potential Senator should ensure there is a followup, especially with a large storm or hurricane impacting the company they had contracted.

    It has been a time when the Do Not Call people are probably violating the process but a lot of unlisted type of people are robocalling now.

    You get what you pay for. Hopefully, that company will not be on the federal payroll as a good company.

    Hopefully, there weren't 127,000 complaints filed with the Do Not Call people.

    One of the curses is that our privacy is invaded with the robo whatever calls. Doesn't matter which party, they all do it. One of the reasons I took the time to add my phone number to the national do not call list was to prevent unwanted calls from advertisers and others. Unfortunately they don't cover the Howell's and Hatches of the world. So to you Mr Howell and to all the other's please stop. I can't hang up fast enough, and if I am not home, time on my voicemail is stolen by your robo cronnies. I suggest you cancel all remaining calls and do more pancake breakfasts for the needy and homeless. If fact have your parties stop the mail trash also and add ham and eggs to the pancakes.
