Utah's Progressive Democrats
Utah's progressive Democrats are working hard to organize. But Charles Kimball, endorsed by the progressive Democracy for Utah, lost on the first ballot to newcomer Megan Risbon. And active Democracy for Utah member Bob Aagard lost his bid for Party Secretary. So what does that say about the upcoming state competitions? Craig Axford, candidate for State Pary Chair and current chairman of the Utah Democratic Progressive Caucus, is running an intense and organized campaign. But he has also been called the Mayor Anderson candidate, a characterization that would make any candidate nervous. The other major candidate, Wayne Holland, Jr. has been endorsed by Congressman Jim Matheson.
