John Dougall has absolutely no political following in the State of Utah, he endorsed Johnathan Johnson (who got destroyed) over Governor Herbert, and he honestly wouldn't even be a serious candidate in a wide open governors race. It is laughable that he would pull of a significant challenge against Mitt Romney. At best, he could hope to score 30%.

Ultimately though, why would he run? Romney forces will take over the Utah GOP and it would just hurt his reelection (if he chose to run.)

He's just looking for a little press coverage, but he's no more of a threat to Romney than I would be
