Utah Democrats getting ready for some exciting Primary Voting Action.

Are there any elections of note coming up?


The only democratic races are in the first congressional district, State Senate District 8, State House Districts 18 and 33 as well as one seat on the Summit County Council.

Sounds like fun.  So who are these people

Let’s see now.

State Senate District 8:
Ty McCartney
Josie Valdez
Apparently Ty  McCartney poses in photographs hugging his family.  Probably a plus in Utah.  I can’t find a similar photograph for Josie Valdez, so my bet is Ty McCartney will win.

State Senate District 18.
Democrats in Davis County are being cordial this primary election season, but Republicans are going for the throat. […]
“I don’t see myself as running against Doug Macdonald,”Richard Bagley said, but he did point out their 20-year age gap does provide them with different perspectives.”He’s an economist and I’m a negotiator.”
Macdonald backed that statement.
“I’m more of an expert on public school finance, more of a cost cutter,” he said.

I suppose you should know what counts for “going for the throat” for the Republican candidates.  It’s “He’s a Liberal” — “No, you’re the Liberal”.

Summit County Council A: Roger Armstrong v. Sean Wharton
Good lord Roger Armstong shows a large family.

In other election news for races coming up.  Texas’s run-off.

News and notes.  Riddle has promised to begin the impeachment process against President Obama the day he enters Congress — seemingly implying that he believes Obama will be reelected — because of a boundary treaty that was ratified by the Senate in 1991.

Yeah.  It’s one of those races.
