"If you would have told me Donald Trump would be leading at this point, I would have never believed you," said Utah Lt. Governor Spencer Cox, over the weekend. Cox is one of the leaders of the Marco's Rubio's campaign in Utah.
Asked if there's any way he could support Trump, Cox said, "If he is the nominee, I will support him." He added with a smile, "I'm not supporting Hillary."
I posted a few weeks ago that this might be the best thing that has happened to the anti-land grab movement.
If SFW throws in with Trump, the only Republican to be fighting to protect public land, it will only help to educate the Utah hunting electorate to the issue of public lands and how it could affect sportsmen.
I would love to have the SFW machine touting the protection of public lands through their Utah media monstrosity (which is huge), and maybe start turning the course of this discussion.
The ancient proverb, "The enemy of my enemy is my friend" comes to mind. If SFW starts fighting to protect public lands as a Trump surrogate and it pushes Ivory and Bishop down a pro-hunter path, then I'll take the benefit I can get from SFW... regardless of how I feel about some of their other operations.
It won't change my overall view of SFW, but I'm not going to cut off my nose just to spite my face.
I think he will do just fine as he will have to appoint someone to that end. I too do not care for DP, but there is a reason he is a thorn in the DIY Hunter's side and that is because he has been successful. As for DT's sons hunting with him, how many on this board actually thought that one campsite down from their camp was gonna be DT's boys? An Ben a lot of what you just posted was your own personal beliefs. John
