Default Utahs chance to really fight the public lands transfer.

We need to elect a candidate that understands what public lands really are and mean to sportsman. It a great opportunity to get us a real voice.

I agree, it may be an opportunity for a chance for change...it may be a snowball's chance, but hey, it's a chance.

Too bad my rep(Bishop) hasn't had a similar awakening. Chaffetz and Bishop have been horrendous regarding their stance on Federal public land management. (Also, Stewart, Hatch, et al.)

It would be great to have someone who is a vocal proponent of public lands take the seat here. Seems like the democratic candidate is competent and reasonable. Will be interesting to see how the race unfolds.

Things are only impossible if you think they are. On May 31, 1904, Winston Churchill walked into the House of Commons and took a seat on the Liberal side, thereby switching sides because the Liberal policies more closely adhered to his beliefs than those of the Tories. Everyone should have the courage to act on his convictions.

Chaffetz is such an offensive tool that his not running will be better for Republicans. Dr. Allen was in my residency program in the early 80's. I'll support her over any Republican because she'll represent my beliefs.

Oh, and O'Reilly's out at Fox. Who'd a thunk? Anything can happen.

The chance of someone with a D by their name, getting voted into Chaffetz empty seat is about the same as me finding Big Foot. The chance of a Republican not wanting he land grab, even less. Vic

I see it as an opportunity. If we make it a major issue during the campaigns we could open the eyes of the blind voters. Now is the time to press the issue in ways that haven't been done. If a candidate make public lands a major issue in thier campaign we might have a chance. I don't care what party they are public lands must remain public.

What I hope for? Either a reasonable republican who doesn't support transferring or selling our public lands, or a reasonable democrat that doesn't hold to some of the policies that are simply ridiculous outside of public lands. Either way, this is a good opportunity to vote someone more public land friendly into his spot. It would be nice to see a little more balance in Utah because the anti-public land politicians is getting old. I agree with Hooper, open peoples eyes to this issue, make it a bigger part of the campaign for election, and scare politicians away from the transfer idea. I'm with Randy Newberg, it's time to make the idea of transferring or selling public land as toxic to a politician as gun control. You have to start somewhere. I could care less if someone with a D or and R fills his shoes, I care they don't support the transfer or sale of public land.

Ever the realist. Look at who Utah voted for President. Look a our Governor, Look at our own Mike Lee and Jason Chaffets. The only place a Dem can win is SLC. I don't vote it is a waste of my time and energy. Vic

Due to reasons both related and unrelated to what we talk about here, I am as happy as anyone that Chaffetz is leaving. My bet is that we haven't seen the last of him and that he will run for Governor in 2020. It will be an interesting campaign as the potential "R" candidates are coming out as well with the news. It does seem like a longshot for Dr. Allen to win, but it has happened before. Remember Bill Orton? (or was it Bob?.. no Bob was the professional wrestler ) I suppose from what I've read so far, Dr. Allen would have my support at this point.

OK Paddler, here is your chance. You know the candidate personally, I don't. Tell us about her, especially what she is like beyond the usual spin all candidates will put out about themselves.
