A few months ago, I got a phone call from a friend I have met through politics. He wanted to ask me a few questions about something.
Specifically, he wanted to know the process for filing as a Democrat to run against Jim Matheson.
I unloaded my knowledge of how the Convention system works, as well as my limited knowledge of the FEC. I gave him some words of warning that are pertinent to anyone looking to challenge RepINO Jim Matheson:
It's Democratic Party suicide, as long as Wayne Holland is Chair.
Because speaking ill of Jim Matheson (D-IHC) is simply not allowed.
And, as long as the Wayne Holland faction rules the party, you will be in the Party Shithouse.
Which is OK. There are some cool people here. Some of them will probably buy you a drink.
And, while I think Scott McCoy stands a better chance in the convention and primary (but that's not to say my mystery person couldn't make it past Matheson), my guy stands as good a chance in the General as anyone, including Matheson.
