Four GOP Governor Candidates To Appear On Primary Ballot

 Republican voters will have a fourth gubernatorial hopeful to choose from in the June primary after former state House Speaker Greg Hughes qualified for a spot on the ballot. Hughes nabbed his place Saturday by winning support from delegates at the state party’s nominating convention, held virtually during the coronavirus crisis. He joins Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox and ex-U.S.-Russia Ambassador Jon Huntsman, Jr. and former GOP chair Thomas Wright. Meanwhile, the GOP race to face off against the state's lone congressional Democrat remains crowded and Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes was forced into a primary.
