What is the Utah Caucus System?

This video explains the Utah Caucus system.  On March 15th you will have the chance to vote for delegates or run to be a delegate. Delegates decide who the Republican nominees are at the county and state level.

Choosing good delegates is the foundation for good government. Please find your caucus location here and plan to attend on March 15th at 7pm.

The Utah GOP has more information about caucuses and how to become a delegate here.

Lincoln Day Breakfast success

The Wasatch County Lincoln Day breakfast was a big success!  We had 18 speakers in 80 minutes in front of a sold out room and a great Soldier Hollow Breakfast.

Speakers included Gov. Gary Herbert, Sen. Orrin Hatch, and Rep. Jason Chaffetz.  In addition, almost all candidates for state wide office were in attendance, as well as our three state senators and Utah House representative, Kraig Powell.  

Thanks to everyone that made this event successful.  

Below are the straw poll results.  Only Wasatch County residents were given ballots.  

Governor: Herbert - 100, Philpot - 21, Kirkham -10, Sumsion - 2

Senate: Hatch - 91, Liljenquist - 26, Herrod - 12, Brunson - 5, Friedbaum - 1
Attorney General - Swallow - 80, Reyes - 50
