Caroline Gleich sweeps Utah Democratic nomination for Senate

PARK CITY, Utah – U.S. Senate candidate Caroline Gleich, of Silver Summit, landed the Demrocatic nomination for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Mitt Romney this fall, easily on Saturday.

Gleich landed over 92% of the party’s vote, defeating challengers Laird Fetzer-Hamblin, who won 5.5% of the vote and Archie Williams III, garnering just 1.8%.

Gleich now advances directly to the November general election, winning over 55% of the delegates’ votes.

“I am honored to officially accept the Democratic nomination to be Utah’s next senator,” Gleich said. “We’re running an historically strong campaign focused on our families, our freedom, and our future. As your nominee, I’m excited to take our message directly to Utahns as we move into the general election. As a ski mountaineer who has climbed the highest mountains in the world against all odds, I’m no stranger to a tough challenge and am ready to take this campaign to the summit in November.”

Gleich, 38, is one of the youngest Senate candidates in the country. On top of that, she has raised national and local attention raising  nearly $400k  – a record-breaking first quarter amount in campaign funding and more than nearly every Republican in the race.

She was also named as one of the New York Times’ list of top 10 2024 Senate races to watch.

Gleich carved her career in ski mountaineering, a background her ad campaigns have correlated to the determination and grit needed for success in politics. Her campaign has stressed environmentalism and she has fought for legislative action on climate change.
