The Standard-Examiner was spot-on in recommending Democratic Party candidate Donna McAleer for Utah's first U.S. Congressional District. Rob Bishop's priorities for the first district are wrong for Utah and the constituents of the 1st District. In a time when it is more important than ever to reach across the aisle and work across party lines, Bishop has demonstrated that he will consistently only work with his own party. He campaigns on the fact that he is the right person to work only with Republicans and promotes a solely Republican Romney administration.
Leadership is needed in Congress to work with Democrats and Republicans to address the most important issues facing our nation. Balancing the budget is one of the most significant and pressing problems.
