Republican Sen. Ted Cruz is coming to Utah to endorse 3rd Congressional District candidate Chris Herrod as Gov. Gary Herbert throws his support behind Herrod’s main challenger.

Herrod for Congress

Former state lawmaker Chris Herrod made headlines this year after he pulled off an upset win at the Utah GOP’s special nominating convention for the 3rd Congressional District. After several years on the political sidelines, the 51-year-old Republican is hoping to re-enter the fray, and is locked in a competitive race for Jason Chaffetz's seat. On the trail, Herrod has emphasized his conservative record and international experience of teaching in Ukraine for several years.

For the last eight years, voters have given John Curtis high marks as the mayor of Provo, Utah’s third largest city. Now he’s hoping that popularity will translate into a successful run for Congress. He’s one of three Republicans running in the 3rd Congressional District for the seat recently vacated by Jason Chaffetz. Their primary is scheduled for August 15.


The once-crowded Republican field to replace Congressman Jason Chaffetz is now down to three candidates — and when it comes to discussing President Trump, the GOP candidates are striking a delicate chord between support and uncertainty.
