State Lawmaker Announces Bid To Unseat Democrat Ben McAdams
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — A Utah state lawmaker is the latest Republican to announce a challenge to Democratic Congressman Ben McAdams, who won a razor-thin race last year.
Utah Senate Majority Whip Dan Hemmert on Wednesday said he wants to represent conservative, free-market values against a growing interest in socialism among left-leaning Democrats.
McAdams is part of a moderate group known as the Blue Dog coalition.
Hemmert owns a chain of dry-cleaning businesses and was first elected to the Utah Legislature in 2016. He joined the ranks of leadership last year.
McAdams won the seat in the Republican-leaning 4th District by less than 800 votes. His opponent, two-term Congresswoman Mia Love, has not ruled out a rematch.
Other challengers include former county GOP secretary Kathleen Anderson, former KSL NewsRadio personality Jay McFarland and military veteran John Molnar.
