Utah primary results really proved what we’ve known all along: The “Utah Republican party” (the caucus system) and its leaders are completely out of touch with most Utah Republicans.
None of “their” major candidates got even 30 percent of the vote. Their state legislative candidates are the ones who vote against Medicare expansion, against education spending, against many measures that regularly have 65 percent approval and more from the electorate.
The larger question, now, is how to get voters to go elsewhere rather than put these Libertarian RINOs into office. Count My Vote is sliced bread for Utah politics. Finally, the Ruzicka era may be over.
