Herbert has apparently made a bold move by appointing Greg Bell for Lt. Governor. Members of the conservative group Eagle Forum pressured him not to because of Bell's radical position of supporting benefits for gay couples (gasp!). The Eagle Forum argues that the appointment of Bell is a slippery slope, and that Herbert should have chosen someone with his conservative values. Herbert responded by saying that he didn't a clone of himself, but rather someone who “compliments” him, in the same way he saw himself complimenting Gov. Huntsman.
Way to have some balls, Herb. I can't say that the appointment of Greg Bell seems all that groundbreaking, but at least its something. Hopefully at least our new Lt. Guv believes that climate change is for real.
