    I think it’s outrageous that the state has the gall to tell the court: “Don’t hear an appeal from one of our state’s political parties.”

    I support the GOP’s appeal, and think they have a legitimate case. But, Utah executive branch, even if you disagree, please have the dignity and statesmanship to get out of the way and let the process run its course.

    If you (executive branch) want to argue against the GOP’s case in an actual appeal hearing, then fine (even though I think you’re wrong). But to interfere to prevent the appeal from happening in the first place is way out of line.
