SALT LAKE CITY, September 18, 2023 –– Following the announcement by House Speaker Brad Wilson that he will be resigning from his position effective November 15th, presumably to focus on his campaign for U.S. Senate, Utah Democratic Party Chair Diane Lewis released the following statement:
“In his time as Speaker of the House, Brad Wilson and the GOP supermajority have overseen some of the most divisive and partisan legislation in the history of our state. From brutally gerrymandering our districts, to pushing through school vouchers, to relentlessly attacking trans kids, to ripping reproductive freedom away from thousands of Utah women, Wilson’s record, and the record of the Utah Republican Party, is one of right-wing extremism. As he embarks on a campaign for Senate, we will continue to remind Utahns of that record.”
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.
