Rep. John Curtis Wins Full Term In US House
PROVO, Utah (AP) – Republican U.S. Rep. John Curtis has defeated two challengers to win his first full term in the U.S. House of Representatives.
The former Provo, Utah, mayor defeated Democrat college professor James Singer and United Utah Party candidate Tim Zeidner on Tuesday.
Curtis joined Congress after winning a special election last year to replace Rep. Jason Chaffetz, who stepped down and is now a Fox News commentator.
Seen as a moderate Republican, Curtis fended off a pro-President Donald Trump rival in the GOP primary.
His victory means he’ll continue to represent the 3rd Congressional District, which stretches from the suburbs of Salt Lake City to the state’s rural southeast corner.
Singer, his Democratic rival, had championed affordable health care. Zeidner represented a new, centrist third party.
