Utah Constitution Party Has Candidates in Half of State Legislative Races

Filing has closed for the Utah primaries. The Constitution Party has 38 candidates for the State House, although two of them are running against each other in one district. Utah has 75 State House districts.

It is unusual for any minor party to run candidates in even half of any state’s legislative districts.

The Constitution Party also has candidates in over half the State Senate districts (8 candidates, in the 15 districts that are up this year).

The Libertarian Party has 8 candidates for the Utah State House.

In the U.S. House races, the Constitution Party has candidates in all three districts, and the Libertarian Party in two districts. Thanks to Frank Fluckiger for this news.
