Utah Democratic Chair Peter Corroon on the 2016 Election (Video)

20160424 Peter CorroonUtah Democratic Party Chair Peter Corroon discusses the 2016 election and how Utah’s Democrats may fare with Hillary Clinton at the top of the ticket.

Corroon says they know Clinton isn’t the most popular political figure in Utah, but he feels Utah’s minority party will be able to make gains because the likely GOP nominee, Donald Trump, is also extremely unpopular in the state.

“The Republican Party has been creating Donald Trump for two decades and, finally, he’s here,” says Corroon. “He’s your candidate, so deal with it as you need to deal with it.”

Corroon says he also was unaware that Mike Weinholtz’s wife was under investigation for possession of marijuana until he made the announcement from the podium at Saturday’s convention.
