Some of you may be wondering why I, a radical Socialist trans woman, endorsed Cox. My answer is pretty simple

1. He liked one of my Tweets

2. [Link]

He is one of the only decent Republicans left. Huntsman isn't too bad either, but it sure will be a shame if Cox loses here.

Huntsman is a stalking horse for the Chinese.

Wouldn't Huntsman's chances be greater if it was a GOP Primary & not a convention ?

There is a GOP primary, the convention doesn't really matter. Romney lost the GOP convention nomination last year, but still went on to win the primary.

I'm pretty sure Orin Hatch lost at least one Utah GOP convention.

Tar Heel Conservative Dem: Wouldn't Huntsman's chances be greater if it was a GOP Primary & not a convention ?

Yes, as has been noted, current Utah law allows three possibilities.

1) Convention only route
2) Signature gathering for the primary
3) Both routes.

The convention is getting increasingly unrepresentative and all serious candidates are taking the dual route.
