Republicans from all over the state will gather this evening at the Grand America Hotel in Salt Lake City. Traditionally, the candidates for the state wide races will reserve suites upstairs while the press and party faithful mill around in the ballroom. I have had a lot of fun jumping from suite to suite in past years to see who has the best food to offer. Despite what happens nationally, Republicans are set to do very well in Utah. I am keeping my fingers crossed!
