US Rep. Rob Bishop Re-elected To Ninth Term
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (AP) — Republican Rep. Rob Bishop has bested two opponents to win re-election to a ninth term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Bishop defeated Democrat Lee Castillo and Eric Eliason of the new United Utah Party on Tuesday.
His opponents tried to paint him as a career politician beholden to special interests, a charge Bishop denied while touting his long experience in government.
Bishop serves as chairman of the powerful House Natural Resources Committee and is a key player on many public lands bills.
A former history teacher and state lawmaker, he was first elected to the House in 2002. He has said this will be his final term.
