Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

Burn Baby, Burn!
The sickest disses candidates have landed during this election season's debates.
Kelan Lyons

We should all aspire to be respectful when we engage in civic discourse. But sometimes the cracks show, and candidates find inventive ways to tell their opponents to shove off. Here are a few noteworthy examples:


Ben McAdams, to Rep. Mia Love
"... I did something I've never seen Rep. Love do: I held a town hall meeting."


Rep. Mia Love, to Ben McAdams
"We've seen Mayor McAdams, with the help of D.C. Democrat allies, come after and try to destroy a fellow American in pursuit of political power."


Jenny Wilson, to Mitt Romney
"I guess we're gonna play Multiple-Choice Mitt, because you've said one thing when you went to run for governor, another thing as governor, then you went off to run for president, and now you're seeking to serve us in the U.S. Senate from Utah. I don't know if it's A, B, C or D, but I see that it does change."


Eric Eliason, to Rep. Rob Bishop
"I'm glad, as of 2017, that Mr. Bishop has acknowledged climate change. Upton Sinclair said, 'It's difficult for man to understand something when his salary depends on not understanding it.'"


A debate heckler, to Shireen Ghorbani and Chris Stewart
"Vaccines cause autism. Autism is caused by vaccines."
