Another Utahn is eyeing Rep. John Curtis’ seat in Congress. Here’s who may run in 2024.

Case Lawrence, a Utah businessman, announced an exploratory committee for Congress this week.

(Leah Hogsten | The Salt Lake Tribune) Utah Rep. John Curtis addresses the delegates at the Utah Republican Party 2023 Organizing Convention at Utah Valley University's UCCU Center on Saturday, April 22, 2023. Two Utahns have now said they're interested in Curtis' congression seat, and others are interested.

A new candidate is eyeing the congressional seat currently held by Utah’s Rep. John Curtis.

Case Lawrence, an entrepreneur and Utah County resident, said Friday that he’s exploratory a run for the GOP nomination in Utah’s 3rd Congressional District.

Lawrence’s announcement comes as a recent poll — done by a group that recently ran television ads urging Curtis to run for Senate — found that Curtis led a hypothetical race for Sen. Mitt Romney’s seat next year.

A BYU graduate, Lawrence is the founder and former CEO of SkyZone, a chain of indoor trampoline parks across the country.

“Utah’s 3rd District is among the most educated and entrepreneurial in our nation — and deserves a conservative leader who knows how to get things done in the real world,” Lawrence said in a news release. “My priorities will be to protect and empower the American family, the American middle class, and American entrepreneurs.”

Lawrence is the second Republican to announce an exploratory committee for the 3rd District race, as state Sen. Mike Kennedy said earlier this month he too was considering a congressional bid.

Others eyeing a run at Curtis’ seat include Auditor John Dougall and former state Rep. Chris Herrod.
