Vice Presidential Candidate Governor Mike Pence Rallies for Utah!

Thousands of people lined the streets of Salt Lake City Wednesday afternoon hoping to get a glimpse of Vice Presidential Candidate, Governor Mike Pence. Due to limited capacity inside the Infinity Event Center, a second rally was held concurrently outside in support of the VP candidate.

Attendees who were present for the rally inside were treated to a great line-up of special guests including; Greg Hughes, Speaker of the House who introduced Governor Pence, Don Peay, Trump For President & Utah Chairman, and General Robert Oaks who addressed the crowd. Utah Republican Party Chairman James Evans led the crowd in the Pledge of Allegiance.

Governor Pence told the crowd that it's time for Republicans to come home. He expressed to the Deseret News after the rally; "That is the message we're delivering all over the country. Utah is in unique circumstances. Frankly, delivering that message here with some of the added attention Utah is getting is probably helping us get that message out across the country."

James Evans, Chairman of the Utah Republican Party said Pence visited Utah "to close the deal" for Trump. Utahns are pragmatic, and they understand a vote against Trump is a vote for Hillary. I just don't think, at the end of the day, Utahns want to deliver Utah to Hillary.

It was an exciting rally filled with supporters from all over the state and beyond. People of all ages were there to hear Vice Presidential Candidate Governor Pence speak. From Utah's youth to our silver seniors, countless individuals from all walks of life came out in droves to support Donald Trump for President. Thank you Governor Pence for taking time out of your busy campaign schedule to make a stop in Utah! The Utah Republican Party supports Donald J. Trump for President!

Elected Official of the Week!

Orrin Hatch

Now in his seventh term as Utah's senator, Orrin Hatch is the most senior Republican in the Senate. Among his many initiatives are the Balanced Budget Amendment to the Constitution, the Strengthening Our Commitment to Legal Immigration and America’s Security Act, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act, the Americans with Disabilities Act, the Antiterrorism and Effective Death Penalty Act, and the Utah School Trust Lands Exchange Act.
Senator Hatch continues to lead in the fight to repeal Obamacare. He is on the front lines of legislative battles to secure the nation’s borders, stop the forced unionization of American workers, and to bring fiscal restraint back to Washington by ending the reckless spending that threatens to bankrupt the nation.
Senator Hatch is the Chairman of the Senate Committee on Finance. He is also a member (and former Chairman) of the Judiciary Committee; a member (and former Chairman) of the Senate Health, Education, Labor, and Pensions Committee; and a member of the Joint Committee on Taxation. He also has the honor of serving on the Board of Directors for the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C.

Orrin Grant Hatch was born on March 22, 1934, to Jesse and Helen Hatch. He married Elaine Hansen of Newton, Utah in 1957. Orrin and Elaine Hatch are the proud parents of six children, 23 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
