SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, June 25, 2017 – In Utah’s 3rd Congressional District, Jim Bennett has announced his run for Congress as a candidate for the United Utah Party. (Bennett is a senior writer at The Jack News.)
Bennett, who also serves as executive director of the new political party, obtained and submitted the necessary signatures to create the party by the deadline. However, Utah refused to certify those signatures in time to also permit United Utah to place candidate Bennett on the ballot in the special election as a representative of the party.
