Summit and Wasatch County voters are looking ahead to the June 30 primary to decide the final matchups for many state and local races in November’s general election. Utah’s hotly-contested House District 54 is up for grabs this year and two Republicans hope to secure their party’s nomination next week.

 

Mike Kohler and Randy Favero both want to be the Republican candidate for Utah House District 54. The district covers Wasatch County and the Park City municipal area.

With the filing window for Utah’s 2020 elections closing on Thursday, there isn’t much drama from the field of candidates who appeared to run in Summit County.

But at least two incumbents— a Summit County Council Member, and a Utah House Representative from the Wasatch back—find they’re being challenged within their own party.

Within Summit County government, there are six positions on the ballot, including three seats on the County Council.

Thursday evening marked the closure of election filing for Wasatch County races.

During Super Tuesday the state of Utah selected President Donald Trump as their choice for the Republican primary nomination. In the Democratic race Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders won the state and Wasatch County, but former New York City Mayor Mike Bloomberg was the winner in Summit County.

In the Democratic race Senator Bernie Sanders won the state’s delegates with 34% of the popular vote. Sanders was followed by former Vice President Joe Biden who captured 17% of Utah’s popular vote, and former mayor Mike Bloomberg with 16%.

The annual Wasatch County Republican Party Lincoln Day breakfast took place last Saturday. Candidates for governor delivered their messages to local members of the GOP.
