Salt Lake City Council Member Eric Jergensen has already frightened off the first of Mayor Anderson's challengers. According to Distric 3 rumor mills, Jane Marquardt has quietly stopped campaigning after not finding much support against Jergensen. Jane Marquardt, though receiving a great deal of press when Mayor Anderson announced her candidacy for her, never actually filed as a candidate, so there is technically nothing to withdraw. But apparently it's over anyway. Jergensen's first run was strong enough that Mayor Anderson balked at endorsing his own sycophant, Polly Hart, who ran an uphill battle against Jergensen in 2001. Clearly, Anderson doesn't want to make the same mistake twice, but maybe Jergensen is the wrong battle.
