Chris Stewart, state Sen. Luz Robles will focus almost exclusively on registering new voters and encouraging people to vote by mail. Her strategy is fueled by a desire to enfranchise Utahns who have become disengaged with government. It also may be her only hope of winning in Utah’s 2nd Congressional District, a sprawling, heavily Republican area that stretches from Bountiful through Salt Lake City and all the way to St. George. “The only way we are goin...</div> <h5><a rel="item-license" href="http://www.sltrib.com/pages/privacy"> Copyright 2013 The Salt Lake Tribune.
