Steve Harmsen and James Evans both wish to be SLCounty GOP Chair. But according to LaVarr Webb, they won't run against each other, instead one will withdraw. Steve Harmsen should withdraw. Though Harmsen is very experienced in Salt Lake Republican politics, that history may be a liability in Salt Lake County among Republican voters who are restive and dabbling in cross- party voting. James Evans lost his senate seat to Fred Fife in November. Fife's narrow win came only after a full frontal assault by Democrats against Evans, a Republican interloper in what is considered a Democratic Safe Zone. James Evans' strengths are shown in the bi- partisan support he enjoyed on the west side and the many minority voters who crossed to his side of the polls.
