I have already picked my Utah County Senate picks, but here are the others. Additionally, I seem to have upset Sandstrom in Orem, let me repeat, I am a conservative and Republicans do not have a monopoly on conservatives. (Especially since Utah County GOP leadership is driving them out). Also, Mr. Sandstrom, if you are endorsed by the UEA, you are not a conservative!
Senate District 2: Ken A. Bowers (Constitution), Jarvis and McCoy are both liberals, and frankly I don't care for either one of them. It is a liberal district, so perhaps that is a badge of honor there.
Senate District 3: PASS - I can't find much about any of the challengers, so I repectfully decline to say who I would vote for.
Senate District 4: Dirk Anjewierden (R), the disadvantage of already holding a seat is that Pat Jones has a record, one that I don't agree with.
Senate District 5: Ed Mayne (D), running unopposed, but a very nice guy who although not conservative, would get my vote.
Senate District 7: Bryce Jolley (R), see above in District 4, Romero has a record.
Senate District 9: Wayne Niederhauser (R), the only conservative in the race.
Senate District 12: Christy Achziger (R), I like her stance on education: "I will not support federal control of our state educational system and I will work to remove un-needed testing requirements." Also, Goodfellow is very liberal (even if he claims to be a moderate).
Senate District 17: Kirk D. Pearson (Constitution), Knudson is fairly liberal, with Evans leaving he may take the title of the Senate's most liberal Republican, but he is honest.
Senate District 18: I have been calling this one a toss-up for some time (one of the first to do so), and I strongly support Stuart Reid (D), But word out of KSL is that Greiner will cease campaigning.
Senate District 21: Sheldon L. Killpack (R), has a fairly good voting record.
Senate District 22: I don't know much about these guys, no one has a website (according to the State Elections Office), so I would probably vote for Greg Bell (R) as I hold my nose.
Senate District 24: I strongly support Darin Glen Peterson (R). He was a rockstar in the House, and has been so in the Senate.
Senate District 26: Once again, no websites. I have a problem with Van Tassel being a bank employee and word on the street is he gets an office and secretary for being in the legislature from the bank.
Senate District 28: Emily Bingham Hollingshead (D) has run an entertaining campaign from the blogosphere, and I commend that. But I haven't heard anything from Dennis Stowell, and I still don't like how he entered the race the exact same moment Tom Hatch dropped out. Honesty in Politics disappeared with that act. I guess I would have to vote for Hollingshead, unless I learn more about the other candidates.
In short: Candidates, GET A WEBSITE!!!
