    I hope you're in 4.  Matheson needs every vote to pull it out again.

        The Matheson name is gold in Utah.  He did better than he did back in 2002 after his Salt Lake County district was gerrymandered out into the rurals (and back when he was a freshman).  He won that race by roughly a 1000 votes.
