California Congresswoman Barbara Lee was in Salt Lake City Friday hosting a campaign event for Hilary Clinton. She told those attending that she believes Utah is ready to vote for a Democratic presidential candidate.
Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign team officially opened a Utah headquarters office Tuesday. The Democrat is hoping to win over voters in a solidly Republican state, where voters haven’t embraced a Democrat for president since the 1960’s.
After counting and verifying all the ballots from last week’s caucuses, Utah Democrats have released their party’s official results. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders came away with 77.19% of the votes and Hillary Clinton had 19.80%.
Democrats turned out in record numbers for last night’s caucus and supported presidential candidate Bernie Sanders by a margin of nearly three to one over Hillary Clinton. Many were participating for the first time.
