Salt Lake City Tribune: Utah shouldn’t grab for first primary slot

Nobody runs for the Legislature because they have an inferiority complex. But the notion that the constituents of the Utah Legislature are more intelligent and discerning than those of New Hampshire, so much so that they should try to claw away the Granite State’s long-time position of holding the first-in-the-nation presidential primary, is egotism on a grand scale. Even for politicians.
