|Declaration of Candidacy||Website/Contact Info||Campaign Finance Disclosures||Party|
|Rob Bishop||Rob Bishop Campaign Website||Pending||Republican|
|Craig Bowden||Craig Bowden Campaign Website||Pending||Libertarian|
|Donna McAleer||Donna McAleer Campaign Website||Pending||Democratic|

Notably, in their questionable "wisdom," which some are labeling as pre-election chicanery, the Utah Debate Commission will be limiting tomorrow's debate podium to GOP and Demo candidates Rob Bishop and Donna McAleer only That's right, folks Independent American and Libertarian candidates Dwayne A. Vance and Craig Bowden have been entirely squeezed out.
It's also the same story in all other Utah Debate Commission featured debates, as to third-party candidates.
Sadly, we'll have to take what we can get however, we guess. It's the Utah Debate Commission's dog-and-pony show... not ours.
Yeah. We essentially agree with the Salt Lake Tribune:
We hope you'll all tune in tomorrow evening, in the event that you can't be there in person, folks.
