LOGAN — Cache County candidate, in a Republican primary, for the northeast open seat on county council, Chris Booth was a guest this past week on KVNU’s For the People program.
He said primaries get people more pumped up about elections.
“Especially in a mid-term year, looking at it from my previous purview as a county chair, in a mid-term election year primaries get people excited about turning out the vote. It kind of reminds you there’s an election and there’s a big ticket race at the top of the ballot with the U.S Senate race happening and then a congressional race happening,” Booth explained.
He said the view is different being a candidate rather than the county party chair.
“As chair it’s different than being a candidate. I was on the other side of this for a couple of cycles trying to help candidates through it and obviously trying to navigate through the pandemic and how to campaign through that, and helping them and helping them get their messages out and they did a phenomenal job as well. I think that changed the way (that)us as candidates can get some of our messaging out.”
Booth faces Mark Hurd for that county seat. We’ll hear from him on another For the People program.
