Letter: Lockhart’s diatribe might help get Herbert re-elected
First Published Feb 02 2014 10:28 pm • Last Updated Feb 02 2014 10:28 pm

I was really shocked to hear House Speaker Becky Lockhart’s diatribe against Gov. Gary Herbert at the opening of the Utah Legislature ("Utah Legislature opens 45-day session with some sparks," Tribune, Jan. 27). I thought, as many of my friends did, it showed no class and was the wrong venue for her to perform.

That kind of stuff goes on when you have your opponent engaged in public debate. If the tables had been turned, you would have heard an uproar throughout the state about how Herbert (as speaker of the House) had insulted the lady governor without her being able to defend herself.

Speaker Lockhart might have just assured Gov. Herbert another term if he decides to run.
