Could Utah Turn Blue In 2018? This Senate Candidate Aims To Find Out

Rantt | August 21, 2017

In the 2016 election, Utah, one of the most reliably red places in America, shocked everyone by becoming a swing state for a few weeks. Donald Trump was wildly unpopular among the predominantly Mormon population and hometown hero Evan McMullin seemed poised to carve off a chunk of disenfranchised conservative voters.
Sadly, we know how this particular chapter in the story ends, but Democrats shouldn’t write Utah off just yet. Nate Silver, the political data guru behind FiveThirtyEight, claims that by some standards, Utah already is a blue state.

“In some ways, it increasingly has the markers of a blue state, meaning high education levels, big tech sector, young population. So you can kind of envision a world in eight years, 12 years, 16 years in which Utah behaves more like Colorado or something, right?”- Nate Silver, Interview for Deseret News
Nobody knows this better than Jenny Wilson, a fifth-generation Utahn who has decided to run for US Senate in 2018. She’ll challenge Senator Orrin Hatch, up for his eighth consecutive term in Congress. Yep. He’s been warming that seat for forty years and is now the longest-serving Republican Senator in US History. Hatch, now 83, has often seemed out of touch recently and a majority of his constituents have expressed concern over his intent to return to Congress.

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) - The pieces are starting to fall into place for the 2018 U.S. Senate race in Utah. The Democrats now have a contender who is ready to replace Senator Orrin Hatch.

Salt Lake County Councilwoman Jenny Wilson joined Inside Utah Politics to discuss her reasons for throwing her name into the ring, and why she thinks a Democrat can win the race.

Wilson said she decided to jump into the race because "things did not get better in Washington," and thinks things only continue to get worse.
