    My... that's a long wish list.

    I don't expect anything to change. Especially not this guys whole wish list coming true. Some districts may actually become even MORE conservative.

    Bottom line... we will continue to see the person with the most funding win (incumbents). Except when the incumbent has become so out of touch with their constituents that the voters rebel and rally against the incumbent, and in those cases we are probably not super-likely to pick a candidate who promises to spend even more, raise our taxes, take more $$$ from Washington, etc. And it for sure doesn't increase the chances of Democrats winning in Utah (if they don't change).

    I think the CMV people are overplaying their hand. Utah's not likely to shift left just because of CMV. It might even go more right.

    This guy can keep hoping he gets his wish list... but it probably won't happen. Heck, even the Heber representative may find himself out of office if his constituents don't agree with his list.

    This was written by a Republican delegate? Maybe there is hope after all.
