Could it Be?

I have not done the research to see if my facts are right, but I've read that only about 3% of voters showed up to vote. Regardless, over 45,000 people voted for our District 3 House seat and 60% of them voted for Jason Chaffetz.

Utah County is the most conservative county, in the most conservative state. Historically, the incumbent always wins here. I have to admit that I am somewhat shocked that Jason has done what all indicators (statistics and analysts) said would be virtually impossible to do.

It makes me happy that we can still shake things up. That we have a say. That we all can make a difference.

Assuming Jason wins the November election, he will have 2 years, starting in January, to show us all what a difference one person can make. Hopefully, for him, it will be enough to keep his job, since we just proved that we are willing to change things up!
