LOGAN — The Cache County Republican Party is holding an exclusive candidate Open House for state delegates to meet state and federal candidates, Wednesday night at 6:30 p.m. at the Cache County Event Center.

Among those scheduled to appear, so far, include gubernatorial candidate T. Carson Jorgensen and the campaigns for incumbent Governor Spencer J. Cox and gubernatorial candidate Phil Lyman. Also, candidates for attorney general, U.S. House, state auditor, state treasurer and six of the Republican candidates for U.S. Senate will be in attendance.

One of those that will be there is current Congressman John Curtis. 

On KVNU’s For the People program last week, Curtis talked about his work of transferring federal lands back to the state.

“I transferred more federal land to state ownership than anybody in the state’s history. I would say that there is no magic wand to it other than just hard work, and building relationships here in Washington D.C.

“I was able to do that with my Democratic colleagues support, and you can’t do that without relationships. And a lot of it is helping them understand the dynamics of a state that’s owned 67 percent by the federal government,” Curtis explained.

Curtis said some of the counties he represents are over 90 percent owned by the federal government. But he said they have been able to resolve some thorny issues on public lands. 

Also last week on For the People was U.S. Senate candidate and former Utah House speaker Brad Wilson, who will be at this week’s event. He said Utah residents are very concerned about what is going on in the U.S. right now.

“There’s certain issues right now across the state that people are very concerned about. And they feel this sense of frustration and this sense of, kind of, wonder in terms of whether or not our country is going to be able to survive much longer, given that the radical policies that are being put on the American people and the lack of regard for the laws that already exist. I don’t think you have to look any further than the border crisis,” Wilson said.

Other senatorial candidates scheduled to be there include Brent Orrin Hatch, Jason Walton, Carolyn Phippen and Trent Staggs. You can get more information at https://www.cachegop.com/
