Republicans are ahead in the majority of races majority of races
Nothing is said in the article about the undecided and third party candidates.
The previous poll two weeks ago had the three third party candidates with three
percent of the vote. The latest Tribune poll has the three at six percent.
These conservative candidates could lose the election for Philpot which is
ironic since he thinks he is the conservative....
I've always supported Matheson, and I think he's done some pretty good things
for Utah. I lived in his district when he first ran, and as a moderate
Republican I voted for him and didn't regret it. But I think it's
time for a change, and I hope the voters in that district turn the reigns over
to Philpot. I think he'll do well, and he won't support Pelosi -- and that is
This headline almost made me cry! I am so excited for these elections I can't
take a weekend! Go Herbert, Philpot, and Lee!
The real news here is Philpot's momentum. As voters are awakening and listening
to Morgan Philpot's message, and not the lies and personal attacks leveled by
Jim Matheson, the momentum builds for Philpot.Jim Matheson is riding
on the coattails of his father. He is riding on his incumbency. He is riding on
his ability to outspend Philpot by a 10 - 1 ratio. But, voters in the 2nd are
awakening to his record, something Matheson says that he stands on, but in
actuality is pathetic in a Republican majority district.93.2% of Jim
Matheson's votes support Nancy Pelosi. It would have been a higher number, but
Nancy had the votes she needed for health care and signaled him that it was OK
to vote against it, a position he later said he would not defend. Huh? Matheson
is not a blue dog, not a moderate. Jim Matheson votes with the Democratic party
- almost down the line.Voters in the 2nd are awakening to the
choice, and that choice is Morgan Philpot. This is a man of character with a
voice that is clearly Utah. A vote for Philpot is a vote for Utah, not
Well said, Joe Moe. I feel exactly the same way. It's time for us moderate
Republicans to dump Matheson and return to our roots. We have the correct
candidate on the ballot this year to unseat Jim Matheson and now is the time to
stand up and be counted. Morgan Philpot is going to beat Matheson and defy the
polling data. At least he will in my house this year. He's the candidate I've
been waiting for and I can't wait to cast my ballot for him on Tuesday! I
encourage everyone else to join Joe Moe and me -- let's take back the 2nd
District seat this year. Dump Matheson, Pelosi and Reid. Nothing could make me
happier than that.
Matheson voted with Pelosi 90% of the time.Matheson's Wilderness
Bill puts Utah County's land in the control of congress and is a job killer bill
which stops ski resort expansion in Salt Lake County.Colorado has 26
ski resorts and 12 million skier days worth $3 Billion dollars and 54,000
jobs.Utah has 12 ski resorts and 4 million skier days worth $1Bilion
and 18,000 jobs.Out-of-state skiers bring $850 million to Utah
supporting 18,000 jobs.Ski expansion can bring 18,000 new jobs to
Utah - Matheson's Wilderness Bill is Anti-jobs and Anti-Utah.The
average income of out-of-state skiers is over $100,000. The average income of
in-state skiers is $50,000.Matheson's Wilderness Bill prices Utahns
out of their own ski market.It's time for a new voice.
Mr. Corroon took the wrong message from his cousin, Howard Dean. Corroon needs
to give us a positive vision of what he could do, not mud slinging invectives.
Utah are rightly called "right to work state" and all of democrats should know
this. Any change in this regard would cause the democrats to loose heavily as
Mayor Carroon now has come to the result of receiving heavy supports from the
Really? No coverage at all of the third party candidates. Boring!
This is great news to see Herbert, Bishop and Lee ahead and Philpot closing the
gap.We need people in office who will work for smaller government,
cut spending, and less taxes. It's great to see that candidates with those
values are taking the lead.
I can't wait until we're a COMPLETE one party state. Seriously, the problem
with this scenario is that the Republican Party, which is in large part
responsible for the economic collapse of 2008 and the misbegotten invaions of
Iraq, completely escapes responsibility of these events.
If Matheson wins and Republicans take over, I would make sure that Jim
understands that his past support of Nancy Pelosi was a mistake, a huge mistake!
Send him the message that he misrepresented Utah by following Pelosi and he
needs to pay for that decision in a big way.
The question isn't whether the Republicans will take over the House after the
elections. The only question is how big will their victory be.Hopefully the new leadership will show him a seat in the back of the bus.
Corroon follows the David Irvine playbook of politics by personal destruction -
too bad it was himself he personally destroyed. Glad its all over in a few
Jim Matheson votes with Nancy Pelosi when she needs the vote. There were 39
democrats that voted to stay and vote about the "Bush" Tax cuts. One more and
they would not have left without discussing it. Yes, Matheson wrote a letter
saying he wanted the cuts, but then he voted with Nancy Pelosi to dismiss and
not vote on them. One vote would have made the difference. It did and it was
Matheson voting with Nancy Pelosi, and not representing Utah.Otherwise, Matheson sits on the fence.Matheson voted to change the
rules so Obamacare would pass, then voted against it, and then said he
wouldnâ€™t vote to repeal it.Anyone that didn't want Obamacare
to pass should vote for Morgan Philpot. Anyone that wanted Obamacare to pass
should vote for Morgan Philpot.Vote for Morgan Philpot. You will get
someone that will listen, understands you can't just keep spending our money,
and will try to get 2/3 of Utah back instead of keeping giving it away.
Corroon has never been able to explain to voters (taxpayers) in unincorporated
Salt Lake County why they suddenly had to start paying a "fee" for police
protection that they've always paid taxes for.Time for a new County
