Utah’s 2nd Congressional District has been overshadowed by the newly added 4th District this election year. The race between Jim Matheson and Mia Love has attracted national attention as well as money from out of state, while candidates in the recently redrawn 2nd District have had little time in the spotlight.
Democrat Jay Seegmiller came out with an attack Thursday on his Republican opponent for the 2nd Congressional District Chris Stewart. Seegmiller called Stewart a hypocrite for accepting federal stimulus dollars and for refusing an invitation to debate.
Seegmiller squinted into the sun as he stood in front the State Capitol building, where he once served as Representative. He told reporters that it was here he learned that if you say something, you better mean it, or someone will call you out on it.
