SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders campaign is expanding its Utah operation with a new state headquarters opening in Salt Lake City and new staff hires. The Sanders campaign said in a statement to The Associated Press that the new headquarters will officially open on Wednesday and four people are being added to the staff, including a state coordinator and a regional field director. Co-chairs for the Sanders campaign in Utah include Democratic Utah Rep. Angela Romero and Black Lives Matter Utah founder Lex Scott. The senator from Vermont decisively won the Utah Democratic caucus in 2016.
