Reps. Jon Cox, R-Ephraim, and David Lifferth, R-Eagle Mountain, have only third-party opponents.

Republicans also are assured victory in Senate District 28 (now held by Sen. Evan Vickers, R-Cedar City), House District 63 (held by Rep. Dean Sanpei, R-Provo) and House District 55 (where Rep. John Mathis, R-Vernal, is retiring). While multiple Republicans are running in each district, they face no opposition from other parties.
