"Donald Trump, and everything surrounding him, is preventing the GOP from
talking about Hillary Clinton's record. That is what's so terrible
about Trump."Yes . . . And Hillary Clinton record has an
outstanding record as a fine and accomplished public servant.It's too bad the Trumpian nastiness of Republican politics takes
attention away from that record.
“Well, he’s our party’s nominee. I don’t agree with him
on some issues. But we’re going to educate him and use his strength to get
important things done.”Nice try, LaVarr. But The Donald
doesn't strike me as someone who is eager to be educated.
Why did you not list all of the candidates who have filed for governor? I know
of at least one other Republican who has filed for Governor, Nate Jensen. How
about some information on all the candidates, not just the obvious ones?
"However, Herbert is well known for taking nothing for granted and will
respond with an aggressive campaign until election day."No,
Herbert is well known for taking campaign donations from big business and
putting their interests ahead of the wishes & health of his constituents.
@Pignanelli "It is nonsense to expect any political party —
regardless of size or stature — to fill every race. Shrewd activists
target resources where a reasonable opportunity to defend or capture a seat
exists. Sacrificial lamb candidates, promised assistance that never
materializes, usually become embittered and resentful."Your last
statement is true, but the rest reflects not paying attention to what happened
at the Utah primary/caucuses. I live in a legislative district which regularly
nominates a Democratic "sacrificial lamb." Yet at the Democratic
caucus there was a mob of people, energized by Bernie Sanders. To me this
suggests the Utah public wants a more radical, revolutionary Democratic Party
than the one you want to give them, i.e. Republican lite, business party #2,
etc. A radical, revolutionary pro-labor Democratic Party need have no more
"sacrificial lambs" in my view.
