State Democratic chair loves democrats’ chances in Utah

Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney is extremely popular with most Utahns and some people say if Romney is at the top of the ticket this fall Democrats might as well not even field any candidates. State Democratic Party Chairman Jim Dabakis says that is simply not true, Utahns through the years have shown they have a fiercely independent streak and besides, he says, Democrats have a great candidate for governor.”He’s a two star general, he’s LDS, he’s got a great family, tremendous successful business guy, he’s a Democrat and he’s going to be taking Governor Gary Herbert on for the mess this state is in.”On KVNU’s Crosstalk show Wednesday, Dabakis said that candidate is Peter Cook. Governor Gary Herbert was also in Cache Valley Wednesday speaking to USU College Republicans and at a town hall meeting in Wellsville Wednesday night.
