The 2014 primary election is three weeks from today, June 24. There are three contests within the Republican party in Cache County. According to Cache GOP chair Danny Brownell, the races feature one incumbent, political newcomers, and those who have had previous experience with politics.
“We’re going to have, in the primary election, a race in the County Recorder’s Office between Michael Gleed and Brad White,” explains Brownell. “We will have a race in the County Treasurer’s Office between Denise Lindsay and Craig McAllister.
“And there will be a race for the County Executive Office between Craig Buttars and Boyd Pugmire. There are opportunities there. We need to keep in mind that nobody gets elected until November.”
However, whomever wins the primary election on June 24 will advance to the general election in November unopposed. There are no candidates on the Democratic ticket for those offices. In essence, the candidates who win the primary election win the general election.
Overall, there is only one Democrat running for office in Cache County this year. Jeff Turley is running for Utah State Legislature District 5 against incumbent Republican Curt Webb.
