Lol @ Democrats thinking that Trump's poor showing in Utah means that they can nominate hardcore leftists for Senate and win!

Utah Democrats are very liberal.  And if you think nominating a Jim Matheson-esque leftist without DSCC backing would make any much of a difference, you're delusional.

This doesn't even make any sense. You're making a strawman out of air right now, because nobody ever thought Snow would win.

     It probably would have been a good idea to nominate someone vaguely electable in Utah, in case Mike Lee pulled a George Allen and committed a catastrophic gaffe.

My apologies, it's just hard sometimes to tell if something is sarcasm on the internet.

I managed to confuse the last names of the two candidates (so I somehow ended up thinking first transgender candidate Misty Lee was running against Senator Mike Snow Tongue) and did a massive double-take when I saw the thread title and thought the sacrificial lamb was winning. Definitely in need of more sleep than I'm getting rn

Will Lee actually win by >70%?

Didn't know Snow was trans before reading this thread btw. You learn something new every day. I don't share her politics, but it takes quite some inner strength for a trans woman to run for Senate in Utah. Respect.

Transphobic comments will not be tolerated. Let's stick to politics.

We actually tried a moderate the first time against Lee, and also a moderate against Hatch in 2012. And a civil libertarian type in 2006. None of them made a bit of different, and none of them even cracked 40%. It really doesn't matter who we nominate at this point, unless its Jim Matheson himself, with a lot of support.

She has also worked at a grocery store for 13 years as a cashier. The same store her mother also works.
