Jim Matheson (D, Utah-04) cuts and runs.
He just can’t take it anymore: It has been a tremendous privilege to serve the people of Utah during my time in the United States House of Representatives, but my time in the House should not be the sum total of my service. Today, I am announcing that I will not seek reelection to the House of Representatives. Better to go out on his own | Read More »
Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04) targeted with vicious racist hate mail.
Come, let me reveal a deep, dark secret of the Mia Love campaign: she’s black. Did you care? Can’t say that I care much, either: what I care about is whether she has the resources and ability to defeat Jim Matheson in this year’s UT-04 Congressional race.

Mia Love’s (R CAND, UT-04) Saturday convention speech.
Below is the speech that Mia Love made Saturday, prior to winning the Republican nomination for UT-04 with 70% of the delegate vote.

Well worth watching.

One talking point that seems to be a favorite of his lately is how, if the GOP does take back Congress, the nebulous forces of “special interests” will once again be in the driver’s seat in Washington. “[Republicans] can ride with | Read More »
Today in Washington – September 14, 2010
Tax cuts are the talk today in Washington. The elites in Washington want to promise some sort of tax relief to voters, because they are scared that ObamaCare, the Stimulus and other attempts to expand the federal government have angered the voters. These promised tax cuts may be too little – too late for many incumbents. The Senate will vote today on an amendment from Senator Mike Johanns (R-NE) to | Read More »

Media Matters ADMITS Barack Obama Has Bribed Congressman Jim Matheson

The right has pointed out it has the appearance of bribery. Today, trying to refute the accusation, Media Matters gives away the game. Casually in defending the appointment, Media Matters notes Scott Matheson told | Read More »
