With the presidential campaigns in their final weeks (thankfully), candidates are honing in on the too-close-to-call states whose electoral votes could tip the election either way: Ohio, Wisconsin, Colorado, Virginia and Nevada.
Voters in those states hear a lot from the candidates in visits, TV commercials and phone calls. And their interests are determining where the candidates stand.
But here in Utah, with our solid six Republican electoral votes, no one pays any attention to what we think. That may be acceptable for a backwater place like Utah, but what about the 23 million eligible voters in California?
