Gov. Hopeful Greg Hughes Chooses Southern Utah Running Mate
SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Former Utah House Speaker Greg Hughes has chosen an elected official from southern Utah as his running mate in the governor’s race.
He praised Washington County Commissioner Victor Iverson’s efforts to keep the tax rate low and rainy-day funds robust in Washington County, calling him a proven leader with a commitment to conservative principles.
Iverson has served as president of the Utah Association of Counties and a public-lands policy advisor for Republican U.S. Sen. Mike Lee.
Hughes is facing several opponents in the race, including former U.S.-Russia ambassador Jon Huntsman Jr., Ex-GOP chair Thomas Wright, businessman Jeff Burningham and Salt Lake County Council member Aimee Winder Newton.
1/3 Victor is a proven conservative. He has served as GOP county and state delegate, precinct chair, area representative, legislative chair and member of the County Executive and State Central committees. He's the former public lands director for Senator Mike Lee,… pic.twitter.com/YHyy0EBePd
