Summit County Primary Election Results

Summit County voters chose Mitt Romney as their Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, and Lee Castillo as their Democratic candidate for U.S House District 1 in Tuesday's primary election.  Romney will face Democrat Jenny Wilson in the race for retiring Senator Orrin Hatch's seat.  Castillo defeated Kurt Weiland and will go up against incumbent Republican Rob Bishop in November.   For State Senate District 26, Democrat Eileen Gallagher defeated Pat Vaughn.  She will face Republican Ronald Winterton in the race for retiring Sen. Kevin Van Tassell's seat.  And Park City resident Jack Rubin won big in Summit County in the Republican race for State Senate District 26, but could not make up for the deficit created by Winterton's big wins in Uintah and Duchesne Counties. 

Voter turnout in Summit County was 39% of registered voters, with 5,095 ballots counted.

Renai Bodley Miller became General Manager of KPCW in June, 2017. Previously, she was a reporter at KPCW. Renai is a 25 year veteran of the television news business. She was a news producer in Roanoke, VA, Richmond, VA, Miami, FL, and Washington, DC before moving to Utah in 1996 to be the Executive Producer at KSTU Fox 13. In 1999, she was promoted to Vice President/News Director. Under Renai’s tenure, Fox 13 expanded its news coverage from 2.5 hours to 10 hours of news a day. She retired in July, 2015, to enjoy her new home in Park City; but she couldn’t stay out of a newsroom for long. Less than a month later she signed on with KPCW as a reporter, and less than two years later she was promoted to General Manager when Larry Warren retired.
