Paul Van Dam Withdrew
According to the Utah Democratic Party Press Release, Paul Van Dam has been withdrawn from the race for party chair. I'm sure this must have happened today, because the Tribune and the Park Record, and the Deseret News all reported him as a candidate this morning. His withdrawal is not a shocker, On Sunday, Frank Pignanelli reported that Van Dam was on an "extended sailing trip" and was expected to miss many campaign opportunities. Perhaps he chose his retirement over politics. If it meant great sailing trips, I'd do the same.
