"Change" has become the cliche word of this election cycle, but a clear anti-incumbent mood was on stark display yesterday in Utah. Republican primary voters there turned out a six-term congressman, three county commissioners and two state legislators, Reps. Glenn Donnelson and Paul Neuenschwander.
"It's just such a tough environment for incumbents," Kelly Patterson, director of the Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy at Brigham Young University, told the Salt Lake Tribune.

Congressman Chris Cannon was beaten by Jason Chaffetz, a former chief of staff to Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr.
In another race that led to an intraparty split, chief deputy state Treasurer Richard Ellis soundly defeated state Rep. Mark Walker for the GOP nomination to serve as treasurer.
