Utah’s all-Republican congressional delegation will return to Washington for two more years.

All four of Utah’s Republican U.S. House representatives are heading back to Washington for two more years.

The Associated Press called its first Utah race for Rep. Blake Moore at 9:37 p.m Tuesday evening. The AP later called the race for Rep. John Curtis at 10:52 p.m., and later called the race for Reps. Chris Stewart and Burgess Owens 11:01 p.m. and 11:07 p.m., respectively.

Summit County did not align with the rest of the state. 56% of Summit County voters chose Moore's opponent, Rick Jones. Also, 50% of county voters chose current Summit County Councilmember Glenn Wright over Rep. Curtis.

In a joint appearance with Owens and Curtis at the Utah GOP election night party, Stewart thanked party loyalists in attendance and assailed President Joe Biden over inflation.

”How many of you really love your country? That’s why we’re here tonight,” Stewart said. “This is personal. When my daughter calls to say she can’t come to dinner because she can’t afford the price of gas, this is personal.”

Curtis thanked his supporters, constituents, staff and family.
