"Despite my inability to reconcile my sociopolitical views to Ashdown's platform, I have committed myself to vote Ashdown. As in the words of my father-in-law, "it is the only message that I can send to Hatch." Although I agree with Pete Ashdown on a very limited number of issues, I believe he will be a true representative of Utah and not only his political party. Hatch has long since trashed his connections to his constituents for highly visible party leadership positions. Hatch, you have had a impressive career, but lets be honest, everything has to do with you and your political visibility."
