US Senate candidate Brad Wilson receives endorsement from 22 Utah sheriffs, 10 mayors

UTAH – Brad Wilson, U.S. Senate candidate and former Speaker of the Utah House of Representatives, has recently acquired the endorsements of 22 county sheriffs in Utah, equating to over 3/4ths of the state’s sheriffs.

Wilson also received Governor Spencer Cox’s endorsement in October of 2023.

Wilson will face a large field of candidates in the Republican primary in June, which includes current Congressman John Curtis; Brent Hatch, the son of former U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch; Mayor of Riverton Trent Staggs; and a former advisor to Senator Mike Lee Carolyn Phippen.

“I am honored to have earned the endorsement of so many of our Utah sheriffs, who put their lives on the line to protect our communities every day,” said Wilson.

“With radicals determined to coddle criminals and defund the police, it’s never been more important to send a conservative fighter to the U.S. Senate who will support law enforcement and put our safety first.”

The 22 sheriffs include Jared Rigby from Wasatch County; Cody Black of Beaver County; Kevin Potter of Box Elder County; Chad Jensen of Cache County; Jeff Wood of Carbon County; Erik Bailey of Dagget County; Kelly Sparks of Davis County; Travis Tucker of Duchesne County; Tyson Huntington of Emery County; Ken Carpenter of Iron County; Tracy Glover of Kane County; Richard Jacobson of Millard County; Corey Stark of Morgan County; Marty Gleave of Piute County; Dale Stacey of Rich County; Lehi Lacy of San Juan County; Jared Buchanan of Sanpete County; Nathan Curtis of Sevier County; Paul Wimmer of Tooele County; Mike Smith of Utah County; Nate Brooksby of Washington County; and Ryan Arbon of Weber County.

“I am proud to endorse Brad Wilson for U.S. Senate because, as Sheriff, I know how important it is to have leaders who care about the safety of our citizens,” said Sheriff Kelly Sparks of Davis County. “I have seen how hard Brad works to protect our communities, and I know he will get the job done in Washington.”

In addition to 22 county Sheriffs in the state of Utah, Wilson has also received an official endorsement from 10 mayors throughout Davis County, adding on to the 10 official endorsements he received from Utah County mayors in November of 2023.

“I’m honored to have earned the support of so many local leaders in the county I call home: Davis County,” said Brad Wilson. “Everywhere I go, you can feel the momentum building behind our campaign driven by Utahns who are fed up with the way things are going in Washington and are ready to send a conservative fighter to take our country back.”

The Mayors include Kendalyn Harris, Bountiful Mayor; Brandon Stanger, Clinton Mayor; Brett Anderson, Farmington Mayor; Tamara Tran, Kaysville Mayor; Joy Petro, Layton Mayor; Brian Horrocks, North Salt Lake Mayor; Rod Westbroek, South Weber Mayor; Dave Maughan, Syracuse Mayor; Kenneth Romney, West Bountiful Mayor; and Ryan Westergard, Woods Cross Mayor.

This week, alongside receiving endorsements, Wilson became the inaugural U.S. Senate candidate to file signatures for ballot qualification in Utah, requiring a minimum of 28,000 valid signatures.
