Tomorrow's a Big Day For Democrats
First I'd like to say I wasn't the only one calling Craig Axford the Mayor Anderson candidate. But I should take responsibility for it and inform whoever cares that Mayor Anderson is actually endorsing Jan Lovett. In a letter to delegates, Mayor Anderson said that while some of the candidates are great progressives, he believes Lovett is best for the job. The question remains. Will that hurt or hinder Jan Lovett. It could help by attracting progressives that would rather follow Mayor Anderson than Craig Axford. But what will this endorsement mean to non- progressive Democrats. Will it entrench them in their support for Wayne Holland? Speaking of Wayne Holland, he's supposedly the moderate, Jim Matheson candidate. He's also the union candidate. But according to Democracy for Utah, Holland said he was not a moderate and actually had more in common with the progressives (not likely considering he doesn't even have a website). Was he just saying that because he was talking to progressives? Also, Jan Lovett picked up the endorsment of the Southwest Carpenters Union. What's going on here? We'll find out tomorrow.
