Republican Primary in Utah's 3rd District

Salt Lake City, UT – Compared to previous election's it's quiet out there in Utah's 3rd Congressional District. Still, the primary race could be the closest yet as Republican challenger Jason Chaffetz takes on 6-term incumbent Chris Cannon. Chaffetz is the former chief of staff for Governor Jon Huntsman. He hopes volunteer power and a restless public will lead him to victory. Cannon, meantime, hopes his consistent conservative credentials and seniority will send him back to Congress.
