Quote: "We are caught in a confluence of events, a time of uncertainty, a time of indecision and a time where the safety of our families has risen beyond the level of parental concern. These challenges will test the measure of a man. These challenges have tested the measure of my opponent and have shown him lacking in the fortitude to stand up for the rights of the people of Utah and America."
