From today's Roll Call
[Republican challenger John] Jacob has narrowed Cannon’s lead to within the margin of error, according to two new polls conducted for Utah newspapers, though both were taken before Jacob revealed that he had played poker in the past — a no-no for Mormons — and that he believed the devil was sabotaging him.
Jacob told The Salt Lake Tribune late last week that since he decided to enter the race, Satan has stymied his business dealings and prevented him from having as much cash for the race as he wanted to spend.
“There’s another force that wants to keep us from going to Washington, D.C.,” he told the paper. “It’s the devil is what it is. I don’t want you to print that, but it feels like that’s what it is.”
Sadly, this sort of thing no longer surprises me.
