Mia Love clinches Republican nomination at Utah convention
Republicans » Mia Love cruises to the nomination for Congress in a convention with very few surprises.


< Previous Page


Other races » In state legislative races, first-term state Rep. Jerry Anderson, a retired science teacher who made waves earlier this year by arguing that the environment needs more carbon dioxide, not less, was bounced from the eastern Utah seat he won from Rep. Christine Watkins two years ago. Watkins left the Democratic Party after her loss and challenged Anderson this year as a Republican. But Bill Labrum, an auto dealer from Roosevelt, won the nomination. He will face former Rep. Brad King, the Democratic nominee.

"I don’t have a résumé of what I’ve accomplished in the Legislature. My résumé is my life," Labrum said.

Casey Anderson got 86 votes to Vickers’ 59 votes, coming one vote shy of capturing the nomination at convention, meaning the two will face off in a rematch of their 2012 primary fight that Vickers won.

Ann Millner, the former president of Weber State University, won the nomination over Lars Birkeland in the contest to replace retiring Sen. Stuart Reid in the Ogden Senate district.

Sen. Daniel Thatcher won the nomination in his Magna, West Valley and Tooele County district; Sen. Kevin Van Tassell, R-Vernal, clinched the nod in his mostly rural district.

In key House races decided Saturday, Scott Sandall won the nomination to replace retiring Rep. Ronda Menlove, R-Garland, in her northern Utah district and Scott Chew won the party’s nod to replace retiring Rep. John Mathis of Vernal.
