  •  It's not that far-fetched (1+ / 0-)

    A poll from January showed Matheson only trailing Hatch by 48-41.  Substitute Chaffetz for Hatch and that's probably another couple of points for Matheson.  Chaffetz would still likely win, but Matheson could definitely make it a race.  It would take a tremendous GOTV in Salt Lake City, a lot of money, and possibly a cross-over endorsement from someone like Bob Bennett, Chris Cannon, or maybe even Orrin Hatch himself.  Chaffetz was a campaign manager and chief of staff for Huntsman, so his endorsement would be unlikely.  It would require all of the dominoes to fall our way, but I guess it's still possible.

    •  You do realize half of Utah are Republicans? (0+ / 0-)

      If the GOP nominee garners merely 80 percent of the party vote, it's over.
