Utah House Speaker Brad Wilson announced he’s forming an exploratory committee for a 2024 run for the Senate seat currently held by Sen. Mitt Romney.
Romney, a Republican, has not announced yet if he intends to run again, but just this week he filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission called a statement of candidacy that allows him to raise and spend money for the 2024 race.
In an interview with the Deseret News before the announcement, at his office in Farmington, Wilson characterized himself as a “pragmatic” conservative, focused on getting things done, and pointed to his work in Utah, including his work the past few legislative sessions on cutting state taxes.
He said he is running because he thinks he can make positive changes in the nation’s capital, and because he’s frustrated with “out of control spending that’s hurting Utah families.”
