Utah will host a special election later this year to replace Rep. Chris Stewart, who is leaving Congress on Sept. 15. The congressman said he is resigning because of health concerns with his wife.
Republicans Celeste Maloy and Becky Edwards have already qualified for the primary election. They could be joined by Bruce Hough, who is waiting for election officials to verify he submitted the needed 7,000 signatures to gain a spot in the primary.
The Republican primary will be held on Sept. 5, with the special election occurring on Nov. 21. Utah’s 2023 municipal election will also happen on Nov. 21, having been pushed back to accommodate the special election.
