  1. The day a Republican loses statewide in Utah……well, that might be the day the sun doesn’t rise in the East

    Utah was a good counter-example to the ridiculousness that took place in Delaware. Replacing a “moderate” (in the Utah sense of the word) with an arch-conservative really makes sense in a state like Utah. It’s not like you have to worry about losing the seat. They did the same to Cannon. I liked Cannon and Bennett better than those that replaced him, but I can at least understand why Utah did what it did.
