  At Least Seven Mormons Running for Colorado State Offices
The results of candidate questionnaires by the Rocky Mountain News have allowed Mormon News to identify seven Mormon candidates who are running for Colorado state offices and two that are running for the US Congress from Colorado. Unfortunately, not every candidate responded to the questionnaires, or even to all the questions asked, so the list is probably incomplete.

  Utah Lawmaker Says Good LDS Church Members Can't Be Democrats
An LDS lawmaker in Utah has caused a controversy by claiming that it is not possible to be a good Mormon and a Democrat. Bill Wright, a member of the Utah House of Representatives who is running for a seat in the Utah Senate, made his comments in a recent column in the Payson, Utah Chronicle, soon after the LDS Church released its regular letter affirming the Church's political neutrality.

  Mormon Women's Boston Globe Declaration Yields Debate
A declaration signed by more than 50 Mormon women and first published in the Boston Globe has led to a debate over what it means to be "feminist" in a Mormon context, as well as questions over what the declaration meant to accomplish. After the declaration was also published in the Salt Lake Tribune, Cambridge, Massachusetts LDS Church member Elizabeth Dionne wrote an editorial for the Tribune disputing the declaration's claims.

  Despite LDS Church's Call, Utah Short of Foster Parents
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints placed a call to action urging its members and families to volunteer for the Utah Foster Care Foundation. Currently, Utah has about one-third of the 6,000 foster families that are needed. A budget deficit in the state Division of Child and Family Services has prompted a call for an audit of the division and the Utah Foster Care Foundation.
