SALT LAKE CITY, November 21, 2023 –– Tonight, at the close of voting for the 2023 general election, Utah Democratic Party Chair Diane Lewis released the following statement:
“This year, we had over 100 Democrats all across the state step up to run for local office, and we have been extremely proud of the hard work and long hours they have put in. Running for office is difficult, rewarding work, and I want to personally thank and congratulate all of our candidates, no matter the final result of their election.
“This year, we also had an election in CD-2 that nobody was planning on. Since announcing her candidacy in June, Sen. Kathleen Riebe has been a fantastic candidate, and she has put in the work in every corner of the district, carrying the banner of our party and motivating voters of all political affiliations who are looking for a new kind of representation. While we don’t have any results yet, I want to thank Sen. Riebe for her dedication and congratulate her on running a truly inspiring campaign. Win or lose, she has contributed significantly to the long, important work of building the Utah Democratic Party across the state, and we are incredibly grateful to her and her team and proud of what they have accomplished.”
The Utah Democratic party is the face and voice of Democrats in the State of Utah. We believe that Utahns deserve strong, competent leadership that puts the people and democracy first.
