Summit County residents showed Tuesday that they’re mostly a Blue enclave within Utah, in terms of voting for national and state races.  

It’s no surprise that Utah went for President Donald Trump, who garnered 58 percent of the vote compared to 38 percent for Joe Biden.

But in Summit County, Biden and running mate Kamala Harris beat Trump and Vice-President Mike Pence by nearly a two-to-one margin.

In the governor’s race, Republican Lt. Gov Spencer Cox has won the state-wide race to succeed Gary Herbert.  Cox received over 64 percent of the vote.   In Summit County, he fell about 3000 votes behind Democrat Chris Peterson.

In the open contest for U.S. House District #1, Republican Blake David Moore won 68 percent of the vote in his bid to succeed Rob Bishop.   Locally, Democrat Darren Parry was some 4000 votes ahead of him.

And state-wide, Sean Reyes has been re-elected as Utah’s Attorney General with about 60 percent of the vote.        Locally, he lost

to Democrat Greg Skordas—who, incidentally, often appears as a defense attorney at the Silver Creek Justice Center.

Summit County did go Republican in a couple of races—voting for Treasurer David Damschen and the incumbent Auditor, listed on the ballot as John “Frugal” Dougall.    Those two candidates only faced third-party candidates on the ballot.
