    I guess the Guv's comments on his strategy if he decides to run for re-election shows the fallacy of the so-called "compromise" on Count My Vote. After all, if every candidate intends to follow the Governor's two-track approach, i.e, both the convention and signature gathering, what is the value of even becoming the convention nominee? Losers at the convention will simply get the signatures necessary to get their names on a primary ballot, making the convention nomination meaningless.

    In reality, the smarter candidates in years to come won't waste time and money on a convention nomination. They'll just put all their money and efforts into gathering signatures, then the primary campaign. After all, why waste time and money seeking a convention nomination when you'll have to go to a primary anyway?

    Just get the expansion done and done rapidly. Our Tax Payer money is being lost every day. Don't be afraid of the right wing Governor Herbert. You will be seen as a leader if you just do what is right and get the programs going. Thousands of Utah families are waiting!

    Govenor Herbert needs to be more concerned with Utah's right wing and how they'll come after him than with BO. Keep your enemies close Govenor, but your friends even closer.

    Be careful while negotiating with the BO misadministration, governor, they are a big pack of liars and cannot be trusted to abide by any agreement they may make. Expect them to change the terms once the program is expanded and cannot be contracted. Everything with them is bait and switch - not falling for the bait is the safest path
