Johnson also sought out Republican Gov. Gary Herbert, who refused to meet with the I Works founder. Several requests went to Herbert’s campaign, "all of which were declined by the campaign manager," according to Herbert’s spokeswoman, Ally Isom.
Johnson, his family and business partners contributed more than $200,000 to Shurt-leff’s campaigns. I Works gave $5,000 to Herbert’s campaign in June 2009. Johnson kicked in $2,400 to Mike Lee during the Utah Republican’s successful 2010 Senate campaign.

Johnson did not contribute to Matheson.
