Miller won 60.3 percent of the vote — barely enough to avoid a primary.
Hawes told delegates in her losing cause, "For too long, Utah’s marginalized communities have stood in the shadows eagerly accepting crumbs from a Legislature that neither understands nor values their contributions."

Former County Auditor Jeff Hatch and Christopher Stout will face each other in a June 24 primary for what may be a surprisingly spirited race.
The winner of that runoff will face Republican newcomer Scott Tingley, who knocked off one-term incumbent Hawkins.
Tingley sharply criticized Hawkins’ "checklist" method of auditing and promised to improve the office’s relationship with the County Council.
The GOP convention was tough for one more incumbent. Assessor Kevin Jacobs was forced into a primary election by Jake Parkinson. The winner will face Democrat Tyler Andrus in November.
