Dave Hansen, The Best There Is?
This bizarre Dave Hansen quote is making the rounds. “I just hope Congressman (Jim) Matheson takes a look at this and gets the idea that staying in the House where he will most likely be re-elected is much preferable to running against a ‘sure winner’ and ending his political career.” You can see the quote and LaVarr Webb's comments on it at utahpolicy.com. The Third Avenue has some more commentary on it. I'd like to echo the current online commentary and wonder aloud if Dave Hansen might have made a stupid joke that everyone is taking seriously. In August, LaVarr Webb said Hansen was probably the most experience Republican operative in the state. But if Hansen is so experienced, why did he send a threatening messages to Matheson through the press when Hatch is such a sure thing? What about the long, long, long odds of Matheson even joining the race?
