Rep. John Curtis Projected to Win Utah's Third Congressional District

Rep. John Curtis Projected to Win Utah's Third Congressional District”

The Democratic wave that hit other states on Tuesday night missed Utah as Republican John Curtis easily defeated Democrat Kathie Allen in the special election in Utah's 3rd CD.

Curtis was ahead of Democrat Kathie Allen and Jim Bennett, a member of the upstart United Utah Party in early returns, with nearly 60% of the vote.

"I pledge to serve the under-represented", he said. Chaffetz, who stepped down in June to join Fox News as a commentator. Curtis gathered signatures, which put him in a primary with fellow Republican Chris Herrod, who won at the GOP convention.

Allen raised and spent almost $900,000 on her unsuccessful campaign. Curtis, a moderate, didn't vote for Trump in last year's election, but says he will support his agenda. UUP candidate Jim Bennett - running to the center of Curtis and Allen - gained about 8 percent of the vote in early returns.

Curtis now goes to Washington where he could be sworn in as soon as next week.

House Speaker Paul Ryan even Tweeted Curtis congratulations on his win.

Curtis is set to replace Jason Chaffetz, after he announced he would not seek reelection.

"As a representative for the 3rd District, I have stewardship over 708,809 people", said Curtis. "I work for you and you're my boss".
