Hottest governor gets the nod

As if having Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (pronounced pay-lin) win the recent Elected Hotties poll for female governors wasn't enough, now she's gone and won the heart of Sen. John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee.

We're just guessing the McCain crew had done its research and reached all the way across the United States and Canada and into the United States again to one of our nation's loneliest outposts — Alaska — to help combat the star power of the Obama camp.

We just like to think that we helped, because so many of you threw your votes behind Sarah before she won the Republican VP nod.

Sarah Palin
The hottest potential vice president ever!

Here at Elected Hotties, we couldn't help but wonder if an Obama/Palin ticket would have been the hottest presidential ticket since the Taft/Sherman ticket of 1908. We're pretty sure that would be the case.

Alas and alack, our two hottest candidates are from different parties. But Sarah is a winner in more ways than one: Outdoorsy = hot. New governing culture in Alaska = hot. Former beauty queen = hot.


Poll results:
Sarah Palin: 74 percent
Jennifer Granholm: 16 percent
Christine Gregoire: 9 percent

Elected Hotties on vacation

Where, you ask, would Elected Hotties go on vacation?

A little place we like to call Saint Kitts. And Nevis. We're in Nevis, too.

It's the smallest nation in the Americas. And it's hot. Back before you know it.

You know who you are

Dear Orem,

That's the best name we can think to call you right now. Don't you think we see the stream of clicks coming from you to Elected Hotties? We're guessing that you're voting for hometown hunk Sen. Mark Madsen, R-Lehi. And you should.

But please vote once.

We really didn't think we were going to have to have this talk. But this is a fun blog, a family blog. And we don't want to have to explain to our little future elected hotties that some people will cheat (gasp!) just to make sure someone wins.

No doubt you've found a way around Blogger's cookie tracker that allows the honest people to vote once. Good for you.

Now stop it.

May the hotness be with you forever.

America the Beautiful

Poll No. 24

No. It's not just a song anymore. Give me these governors over purple-fruited plains any day. Whether you're headed to The Last Frontier, The Great Lakes State or The Evergreen State, you're going to find a pretty good looking woman in charge. Just something else that makes America great.

We've just found the hottest female governors in the United States and we're giving you a chance to vote on them. Aren't we wonderful?

Gov. Sarah Palin

Gov. Jennifer Granholm

Editorial: Ode to the Others

So a few things need to be said and we are going to say them. Though we tirelessly hunt for the hottest of the hot all over the state, once we present the candidates to our voters the results are out of our hands.

However, there have been a few times when we have sat helplessly while who we thought were clear favorites were brutally trounced in the polls. We winced as the polls closed and often searched for answers. Sometimes, hottie candidate “groupies” rally support for a favorite and recruit voters, some find ways to vote more than once and sometimes the photos we have just don't do the hottie justice.

Take Salt Lake City Mayor Ralph Becker. Granted, he was up against Farmington Mayor Scott "the Stunner" Harbertson, which could be daunting for anyone. But Becker's charm and good looks should have provided for a much tighter race.

Ralph Becker

Then there is Sen. Pat Jones. She's a looker. We've seen her in person and she is very well put together: stylish, poised and nary a hair out of place. Not to diminish Sen Margaret Dayton's squeaker victory, but we feel the poll photo fell tragically short of doing her justice. Our bad Pat.

Pat Jones

We applaud those who would be able to point out a bad picture to us and send us a more fitting one in the name of fairness.

Coincidently, the Senate men's race also had some of us scratching our heads. There is no doubt that Sen. Mark Madsen isn't too hard on the eyes. He's a tall drink of water with a winning smile. Nonetheless, EH feels that Sen. Scott McCoy was grossly overlooked. He is fit, tall with boyish good looks and a confident stride. How is it that he only got 13 percent of the vote people?!

Scott McCoy

Then in the Legislative finals once again Madsen comes out victorious against Rep. Greg Hughes, aka "Blue Eyes." Let’s face it, aside from those piercing baby blues he's got a set of playful dimples, raven hair and that oh-so-bronzed skin, yet he lost by a landslide. C'mon!

Greg Hughes

So we just want to let those candidates know that just because you fell short in the polls doesn't mean you're not smokin'. Thanks for being hot.

Hottest female official in Utah

Utah is buzzing, and not just because it's the Beehive State. Utah is buzzing for Amy Wicks, the Ogden City Councilwoman who was just elected the hottest female official in Utah.

This is a first for Elected Hotties, but a second for Amy, who was recently elected the hottest city councilwoman in Utah just two weeks ago.

From what we read, this honor couldn't have gone to a more deserving person. Not that the rest of the candidates wouldn't deserve this recognition, but there's a lot to say about Amy's sense of humor, flair for tackling city issues and her good looks.

Amy Wicks
Utah's Hottest!

Congratulations, Amy! And thanks to her supporters as well. This was another stunning victory with 272 votes cast.

Poll results:
Amy Wicks: 54 percent (147 votes)
Neka Roundy: 40 percent (110 votes)
Margaret Dayton: 2.9 percent (8 votes)
Karen Sunday: 2.5 percent (7 votes)
