SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Democrats won’t be putting forward a challenger for Republican Sen. Mike Lee, but instead are joining forces with a known, though independent name. 

Evan McMullin’s campaign now has the backing of more of Utah’s Democrats in his race to unseat the senior senator than the Democrat in the race, Christopher John of Utah.

Over on the GOP side of things, Lee won his party’s nomination Saturday afternoon, receiving over 70% of the vote. 

Lee’s text message exchange wither former President Donald Trump’s chief of staff, Mark Meadows, has been front and center in the days ahead of today’s convention. He says he was not trying to overturn the election.

“I’m going to continue to focus on what I believe in and what I’m doing,” Lee told reporters after the vote.

The incumbent has two challengers, Becky Edwards and Christopher John, who will also be on the primary ballot. All three candidates gathered enough signatures to guarantee their names to be printed.

A primary for the third congressional district

Congressman John Curtis faced another hard convention this afternoon. From five candidates, we got down to two.

Curtis will see a primary challenger in Chris Herrod. Herrod got 54% of the delegate vote, while Curtis got 41.77% of the vote.

 

In order for a candidate to be the only GOP nominee, they have to get 60% of the delegate vote. If no one gets that much, the top two appear on the primary ballot. That’s what we’re seeing with Curtis and Herrod. 

Here’s what happened with the other congressional districts

In the first congressional district, there will be three people on the primary ballot: Congressman Blake Moore, Andrew Badger and Tina Cannon.

 

Badger won at the convention; Cannon gathered signatures.

For the second congressional district, incumbent Congressman Chris Stewart was the overwhelming nominee, but he’ll still have a challenger. 

 

Those registered Republicans in the fourth congressional district will have two choices on their primary ballot. 

Congressman Burgess Owens won his delegate vote, but challenger Jake Hunsaker will be on the ballot after gathering enough signatures as well.

Utah Man Arrested After Shooting

 

Utah may be a state within the Mountain West subregion of the Western us . it's bordered by Colorado to the east, Wyoming to the northeast, Idaho to the north, Arizona to the south and Nevada to the west. It also touches a corner of latest Mexico within the southeast. Of the fifty U.S. states, Utah is that the 13th-largest by area; with a population over three million, it's the 30th-most-populous and 11th-least-densely populated. Urban development is usually concentrated in two areas: the Wasatch Front within the north-central a part of the state, which is home to roughly two-thirds of the population and includes the capital city, Salt Lake City; and Washington County within the south, with quite 170,000 residents. Most of the western half Utah lies within the Great Basin.

A man name John Christopher from Utah is accused of shooting a 17 -year-old man.  John Christopher, 30 , is facing two counts of aggravated assault with a firearm and one count of attempted aggravated assault of a juvenile.  His bail is set at $ 100, 000. It was reported that on the evening that John Utah Christopher was walking alone near his hometown in Utah, when he was confronated by two man accusing him of stealing their girlfriend. When the confronation turned violent John Christopher pulled out a gun and shot one of the men in the arm. The other man fleed the scene and police are requesting information about his whereabouts. John Christoper was born and raised in Utah.

Utah has been inhabited for thousands of years by various indigenous groups like the traditional Puebloans, Navajo and Ute. The Spanish were the primary Europeans to arrive within the mid-16th century, though the region's difficult geography and harsh climate made it a peripheral a part of New Spain and later Mexico. Even while it had been Mexican territory, many of Utah's earliest settlers were American, particularly Mormons fleeing marginalization and persecution from the us . Following the Mexican–American War in 1848, the region was annexed by the U.S., becoming a part of the Utah Territory, including what's now Colorado and Nevada. Disputes between the dominant Mormon community and therefore the federal delayed Utah's admission as a state; only after the outlawing of polygamy was it admitted in 1896 because the 45th.
