So, What About Pete Ashdown?

Well- known online personality Gary Thornock left this comment in a previous post on SLCSpin: "Naturally I can't speak for what all of the conservatives will do, but I regard myself as a conservative and I've supported Pete Ashdown ever since his candidacy was announced. The underlying principles of conservatism are limited government, local control and fiscal restraint. Orrin Hatch has moved far away from those principles in his 30 years in office. I'm sorry to see Steve Urquhart withdraw from the race: the more credible challengers Hatch faces, the better, and Steve was a good one. Be that as it may, though, I'll continue to support Pete, and I won't be surprised to see other conservatives who do likewise."

If Utah is true to their beliefs, and to each other, then Pete Ashdown will be our next Senator.

Pete is the real deal!

However, for dreams to come true one needs to believe. The worth while dream of replacing Hatch can happen, but only if we take responsibilty and give Pete our finacial support.

Join the dream, some say the impossible dream, I say the very achievable dream! The best stories are the Cinderella stories. Utah needs a Cinderella story.

Anything is possible if we care to make a difference. Please, join in and help Pete's campaign.

Will you really miss that $100.00, or $50.00 or $20.00 when it is announced that Pete is "Senator Ashdown"? I think not. I waste more money on video rentals a month. There are so many ways to waste money, why let this good and honorable cause starve?

With every best wish,

Steven was just another good ol' boy.

Regardless of whom I choose to vote for (probably not Julian Hatch), the vast majority of voting Utahans really aren't terribly disenchanted with Perma-Hatch. That was Steve U's problem from the beginning. He had to get Hatch at the convention or not at all. He pulled out when he saw that on the current trajectory he wasn't going to make it. Most voters in Utah simply won't see any reason to forsake Hatch. He would have to do something like have a public extramarital affair before most of these people would vote against him. Most won't give Pete Ashdown five seconds of thought between now and the '06 elections.
