The election yesterday will hopefully be a portent of things to come in ways Republicans can't imagine. Three Republican County Commissioners, two Republican house members and a long-termed Republican Congressman all went down to defeat. Admittedly, Chaffetz isn't the brightest star in the galaxy, in fact, after watching him debate Chris Cannon, I've concluded he's barely a meteor. But voters were restless and ready for change. The question will be in Utah, does that desire for change include voting for more Democrats and restoring accountability to our government? At this point, I don't know. Chaffetz postured himself as a more pure right-wing ideologue, and that message resonated with the Republicans who vote in that district. So Chris Cannon isn't conservative enough for that district? If that is the case, the collective lobotomy of the people of that district is likely irreparable. However, I'm still holding out hope, that the people of Utah, and the people of this country are hungry for appropriate changes, which includes electing more Democrats.
I guess we'll see in November.
