ABC 4's Chris Vanocur speaks with Jim Dabakis, Utah's new Democratic chair, who spent five months campaigning across Utah for election.
Dabakis believes that within his two years as the Democratic chair, it is a likely scenario that the Utah Democratic Party would have a real shot at a U.S. Senatorial seat.
However, if either Mitt Romney or Jon Huntsman were to become a nominee for the presidential election, Dabakis believes that would make it a challenge for Democrats to take up congressional spots in Utah.
Despite Dabakis' belief that the country would be a better place if there were more Democrats, he does not believe that the one-sided system that Utah is leaning towards would not be a good thing.
"A one-party system is not good in Utah," Dabakis says. "We need a two-party system."
There is a history of splitting ballots in Utah especially when there are great candidates for Senate and Congress. Dabakis claims the Democratic party will be aiming at least for split ballots.
In this segment, Dabakis discusses a couple people who may run, describing them as strong Democrats with common sense. One possibility is Wayne Holland as a congressional candidate. For other potential candidates, Dabakis says we will just have to be surprised.
