  • Jorgenson-Vick Poll: 75 of 104 respondents (72%) said state Sen. Mike Jorgenson is either being a baby (51, 49%) or boosting challenger Steve Vick's profile (24, 23%) by fighting to keep him off the ballot. 24 of 104 respondents (23%) said Jorgenson is just following the law (12, 12%) or they wouldn't vote for Vick because he's supported by legislators Phil Hart and Jim Clark.
