Philpot is a constitutional conservative who is going into public service to reduce the size of government. Matheson claims to be a "moderate" in a Republican District votes 93% of the time with Nancy Pelosi's Democrats... that's not moderate. Matheson votes 89% of the time exactly the same as Barney Frank and Charlie Rangel, for heaven sake! If voters figure that out, he's history.

He listens to the people, not the party.

Jim Matheson listens to the people, not the party. Can Mr. Philpot say that?

Dave is the only candidate guaranteed to listen to the people. You can call him any time, and he has no party or lobbyists to answer to, just his constituents.

Philpot needs to change his name. Every time I see one of his signs I think it says Pol pot.

Matheson is an impotent congressman, giving the 2nd districts vote to Pelosi whenever she wants it. Time for him to get the boot

I'm so sick and tired of hearing that Jim Matheson is "fiscally responsible" when he has voted us into $1 Trillion more debt.

Not willing to take a chance on voting ANY Dem in this time around. I have been a lifelong Democrat.Hardly ever voted a straight ticket,I always voted for the person.A big change this time. Changed parties and will not vote for a Democrat,especially with any trace of Obama,Pelosi and Reid involvement.They have shown no respect for me or my beliefs.They have lost me forever!

I'm with lawrence and maggie. We have to rescue ourselves from big government spending and socialistic legislation. I, too, try to vote for the man,not the party. But when the democrats have shown us how to get so deeply in debt, we can't afford to split the republican vote. If the republicans we elect don't do what we want them to, we'll be in BIG trouble !

Matheson gives lip service to the people. He will never reveal his position. On the Obamacare vote, I have friends that called, and went to his office to plead him to vote against, and he would not confirm his position, or his Secretary would just stack their petitions in a pile. Why? He was waiting for Pelosi to tell him how to vote. They had enough votes with Bart Stupak to pass it, so he was off the hook. He votes with Pelosi 93% of the time, otherwise they let him vote Conservative, to give the appearance, to keep his seat. Let's get rid of this Pelosi Sock Puppet.

I think you are spot on,on this. Called his office the evening before the Healthcare vote and they were still saying he did not know which way he was going to vote. Then there is the story of his brother and the Judgeship. Now ,it is my understanding his brother is qualified,however the timing was really bad. I just lost my trust that the Dems are doing things in the interest of my country. It appears that they are just power crazy 16 year olds in a mall with a no limit credit card.

Randall Hinton is a strict Constitutionalist, and will not be swayed by lobbyists to vote anyway other than what the Constitution allows.

There is only one man in this race that really believes that the government should stay out of our lives as much as possible, and he is Randall Hinton. When you look at the incumbents record, you will find that he has voted 93% with the Polosi (Democrat) point of view, and is not the conservative that most people are saying. Morgan may be a conservative, but gives the Federal Government more power than they are allowed by the Constitution. Randall, if elected, will not have any political machine to be beholden to, and so his election would make him a much more powerful voice on a Constitutional basis than any of the other candidates.

I agree. Just during this election time he has sent out at least two full color, four page ads to support his being re-elected, stating that he has looked out for saving we the people's money. On the back of each of these brochures is a statement that he makes that shows the exact opposite of what he says. That statement is the the brochures were produced and mailed at tax-payers expense. I consider it a terrible offense to be able to use tax-payer money to help run a campaign. He should be using his own money, not ours. The other candidates don't have that privilege why should he? That is taking unfair advantage of his office, and as far as I am concerned makes Mr. Matheson a liar.

He is the most qualified and knows the Constitution the best.
