SALT LAKE CITY (April 25, 2020) — Governor Jon Huntsman issued the following statement following the 2020 Utah State Republican Convention:
“Mayor Kaufusi and I want to thank the delegates who stepped up to serve their communities and our party for an extra cycle. Over the past few weeks, they have spent an extraordinary amount of time engaging with the candidates and carefully considering the issues we face as a state and they deserve our gratitude.
“I also want to applaud the tremendous efforts of our party leadership, including Chairman Derek Brown. He and his team faced some daunting challenges but they showed unwavering determination and put on a terrific convention. Their efforts will benefit our party for years to come.
“Utah needs an experienced governor who is prepared to lead our economic recovery. The plan we put into place during my first term as governor laid the foundation for 15 years of economic growth. I’ve done it before and I’ll do it again. A record number of Utahns — more than 60,000 strong — showed their support for our campaign to put us on the primary ballot and we look forward to working hard every day between now and June 30 to earn their vote.”In addition, the Huntsman-Kaufusi campaign unveiled its newest television advertisement, highlighting the importance of electing an experienced leader who has led Utah through difficult times before. The spot will begin airing locally this week across the state.
