    No change, actually. That's what's truly frightening.

    WHAT changed between Mr. Stewart's
    bold claim that Trump is "our Mussolini",
    "I Love this president!" ?

    It wasn't Donald Trump, that I can assure you!

    Rep. Stewart should go back to writing mediocre books, and leave the governing to someone with integrity and a willingness to listen to their constituents.

    She's got my vote. Although, I would have supported any challenger after Stewart lent his support to Devin Nunes' demolition of the House Intelligence Committee's credibility.

    Stewart was on the right track when he declared Trump to be our Mussolini, then he changed his mind. Hardly a mark of integrity.

    Stewart is a great man, but he refuses to acknowledge or condem the amoral actions of his party leader. It reflects poorly on him when he acquiesces to President Trumps repeated untruths and ignores his treatment of women and people of different color skin. Great men speak up for what is right and what is wrong. One post indicated there is “unsupported allegations...against our president, “ which simply is not the case. The president has admitted paying off women to gain their silence so that it did not damage his campaign. The President at first denied, but then when caught, admitted it. The recording of him agreeing to pay the money is undeniable and, if true, would be a felony. Not to mention the constant untruths he tells each and every day. It’s time to take a stand against these things and be a good example to our children.

    Stewart is a great man, who has served his country honorably and faithfully for years. "

    Yeah. And now he blindly supports a guy more loyal to our enemy, Russia over America.

    SGU. No evidence Trump is corrupt. You are joking right. He is on tape bragging about about assaulting women. If Trump were a Democrat you would be screaming for his impeachment.

    Shireen is doing something Stewart has never done. She’s going out and listening and talking to people who haven’t been rounded up and put in front of a staged political event because of their loyal alligience to a party. Way to go Shireen. Win or lose u are an asset to our democracy.

    When I hear Stewart support Trump it sickens me. Stewart has lost his moral authority with me so I'm going to look elsewhere for someone to represent me.

    So much for accuracy in a self-given title ... "Impartial" ...

    Grateful we have people of the integrity of a Chris Stewart willing to run for office, despite the blood-sport doing so has become.

    Voting for her is a vote for socialism.

    Stewart is a great man, who has served his country honorably and faithfully for years. Name calling and unsupported allegations cannot take that away, or elevate his opponent. Utah voters are too smart to buy in to unsupported allegations against Stewart and our President. I guess many Democrats are of the view that unending allegations that Trump is corrupt (without any factual support) will make people forget that the evidence overwhelmingly establishes that their own presidential candidate has been corrupt for years.

    Yeah, his approval rating might be below 50%. Shireen has more integrity her pinkie than Stewart does in his entire body. He's a military veteran that eschews his oath to our Constitution in favor of supporting a corrupt President. She should win hands down, but there's a certain segment of our population that will pull the "R" lever, no matter what.
