Utah Election Today Highlights Illegals, And GOP Myopia

There is a congressional election today in Utah, where the Incumbent Republican has taken the wrong side on the Illegal Immigration issue. Click the title bar to see the particulars. If this election goes the way of several similar referendums on the issue, the incumbent, Chris Cannon will lose in the GOP primary today.
From the piece: (stating what I have said numerous times)

Other than spending I don’t think I’ve ever seen an issue in which the GOP leadership is more detached from its base than illegal immigration. The GOP base (and many Americans) is adamant that any immigration reform secure the borders first. There is also overwhelming opposition to anything that smells like amnesty.

I hope Mr Cannon loses, as the GOP needs this sort of wake up call.

I'll be back
