    This Utah Physician Hopes To Give Jason Chaffetz Some ‘Strong Medicine’ In 2018

    In just two days, Kathryn Allen raised about $200,000 in her campaign against the GOP congressman.

    WASHINGTON — By dismissing an angry crowd of constituents as paid, out-of-state protesters last month, Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) helped convince a very real constituent in the audience that it was time to run for office.

    And when the congressman said Tuesday that low-income Americans shouldn’t buy iPhones if they are unable to afford coverage under the new GOP health care law, he may very well have ensured he’ll have a viable challenger come 2018.

    Kathryn Allen, a Democrat and family physician from Cottonwood Heights, Utah, had been toying with the idea of running against Chaffetz, whom she recently described as a “terrible excuse for a public servant.” But it was Chaffetz’s iPhone blunder, Allen’s public response and the explosive groundswell of support — and funding — she received afterward that provided the final boost.

    I hope this Kathryn Allen blasts him right out of office.

    Jason Chaffetz represents a heavily Republican district in the most Republican state in the country. Kathryn Allen can raise all the money she wants, but she won't come close to defeating him.

    We shall see wont we. Lots of Republicans are now committing suicide. They may still have the big money backers but their ads won't mean anything since they have chosen big business instead of the citizens.

    The dems and the centrists are organizing a "swamp the precinct" event next month in the GOP annual precinct meetings.

    The majority at each precinct will elect the officers for this year and next as well as county and state delegates.

    That means they can out Chaffetz at next year's convention and vote against in the Republican Primary.

    If Kathryn really did raise $200,000 in such a short time, she can be in the game.

    I heard a rumor that progressives are shills, cowards, and liars.

    My point, of course, is that nobody complained when obammy said the same thing. But of course you don't understand. You are of substandard intelligence. Nobody expects you to get anything.

    When fake says "swamp the precinct" he means they'll be bussing in illegals, felons, and the mentally ill.
