The latest campaign-finance reports, which were due Monday, show some big differences between the most prominent people vying to replace Rep. Jim Matheson in Congress. On the Republican side, there’s Mia Love, the national GOP darling, fighting against Bob Fuehr, the self-funding businessman. On the Democratic side is Doug Owens, a lawyer who has buddied up to some of the state’s biggest power players. Love, the Republican who...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

One of them will represent Utah in Congress unless a third-party candidate pulls off a huge upset. The state’s 4th Congressional District seat is up for grabs this November after Rep.

However I believe that Monday’s column comparing Gov. Chris Christie to Gov. Scott Matheson is completely off base (“Chris Christie could learn from former Utah governor Matheson,” Opinion, Feb. 24). One need only look back a year and a half, when Gov. Christie responded to the impacts of Superstorm Sandy. The devastation was apparently similar to the situation handled by Gov. Matheson. However the reaction of Gov. Christie ...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune. All rights reserved.

Gov. Chris Christie, whose presidential aspirations could hinge on the outcome of multiple investigations into the partial George Washington Bridge closure that shut down traffic in Fort Lee for four days, has denied any prior knowledge of those disastrous plans.

Jim Matheson told Utah legislators Thursday that the state should closely watch, and maybe copy, something radical. That is California’s recent move to make politicians from both parties run against one another in combined primary elections, with the top two advancing to the general election. “I do think it draws a greater voter participation,” in part because independents can vote in the primary, said the seven-term congr...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
