The Tribune's endorsement of Rep. Rob Bishop for the 1st Congressional District is confusing ("Rob Bishop: Insider can have clout in Capital," Our View, Sept. 2). You wrote that Donna McAleer is best-qualified, except that Bishop has seniority in a Republican-controlled House.
McAleer's qualifications military and business experience, athlete, health care advocate, community volunteer and author are a permanent part of her resume. Bishop doesn't have any of those in his resume, and he probably never will.
No matter how much The Trib or anyone else supports Bishop now, his seniority will expire some day, and someone else will begin to build theirs. The sooner McAleer starts to accumulate her seniority, the better for Utah's 1st District and the United States.
