  •  It may be a while till we get Utah's EVs. (4.00)
    No Democrat has won Utah since Lyndon Johnson, in 1964, and that holds for most of the other Western Mountain states.  However, with a strong state party organization, even super-red states can send Democrats to the House and the Senate (like Stephanie Herseth, Byron Dorgan, Kent Conrad, Max Baucus, Tim Johnson) and elect Democrats as governor (Brad Henry, Kathleen Sebelius, Brian Schweitzer).  Dean travelling to Utah will help energize the party there and make people realize that Democrats do indeed take an interest in them.
