SUMMIT COUNTY, Utah — Summit County Councilmember Glenn Wright filed last week to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in Utah’s 3rd District. Wright’s term is about to expire, and he has previously stated that he would not run for reelection.
The seat is currently filled by Republican Rep. John Curtis, who is running for reelection. The district stretches to the Colorado border and the Four Corners.
Wright has served on the county council since 2017. For years he has worked in Utah democratic politics at the county and state level. He failed to win in 2014 when he ran for Utah House District 54.
FiveThirtyEight considers the seat ‘Republican-leaning.’
Who else is running:
- Archie Williams (Democratic)
- Michael Stoddard (Libertarian)
- Aaron Heineman (Independent American)
Correction: A previous version of this article stated that Glenn Wright is the Chair of the Summit County Council. Wright was Chair last year, but Chris Robinson is Chair this year.
