Utah's 1st Congressional District

By Dan Bammes

Salt Lake City – Republicans have held Utah's 1st Congressional District since Jim Hansen beat Gunn McKay in 1980. Today the seat is held by Rob Bishop, a former state legislator, who's running for his third term in the House. His Democrat challenger is Steve Olsen, an engineer from Weber County, who's been trying to convince voters that they're really Democrats -- they just need to admit it. KUER's Dan Bammes caught up with Olsen next to Highway 89 in North Salt Lake.
