And that's the game. Of all the right-wing fruitcakes in Utah, Chaffetz was the only one who could beat Cox.

It helps things out, but I worry that even a right-wing state senator or the like could Unite The Crazies at the convention. Any locals have some observations about that?

Well, for what it's worth, I live an hour and a half away from the Utah border and I volunteered for Ben McAdams in SLC. From my observation, the state GOP - at least in recent years - is actually substantially to the right of the Utah electorate. If a right-wing challenge materializes, I expect Cox to lose the state convention and then swamp his challenger in the primary proper as Romney and Curtis did last cycle.

Quite possible. I have a sort of axiom here: "conventions and caucuses are dominated by "activists" (and thus, usually - extremists) in 99% of cases", and reflect nothing, but "activist's" views...

I've read that Governor Herbert has endorsed Cox as his successor.

This tweet basically explains Chaffettz pretty well. He's a talking head who sees more value in bloviating than in actually governing or making policy.

Well at least he's aware that his bloviating won't translate into policy. Unlike some (Ron DeSantis) politicos.

Cox will do well. Best case scenario for decent people in Utah.
