Running for Senate District 14!

Earlier this week, I announced I am running for Senate District 14. Current Senator Al Jackson will not be seeking re-election and according to his website, will be moving back east to support his son, Frank, who will be playing for Duke University.  Over the course of this campaign, we will have many opportunities to talk about policy, but today, I want to share the … [Read More...]

Presidential candidate Carly Fiorina has officially filed to be on the ballot in New Hampshire - and hopefully soon, 49 others as well.

The end of an era: George Wythe University finds a safe landing

George Wythe University is a school that used to operate out of Cedar City, made claims of moving to Monticello and now has a Salt Lake City home. Although I was never a student there, we toyed with having our son attend - until he interviewed with Shanon Brooks and Oliver DeMille. We quickly realized he would not be considered a "cool kid," the school was way more of a … [Read More...]

Ron Swanson

What the heck happened in the Speaker’s race??

In case you missed the DC melt-down of the last few days, or you're still shaking your head, you're not alone. Like Ron Swanson, we're all wondering what the heck just happened. So really - in case you missed it, on Thursday, Congressman McCarthy goes into a meeting as the easy shoe-in for the next Speaker of the House and comes out angry and no longer a candidate. … [Read More...]
