Calling all young Utah Republicans

Reliably Republican Utah has surprised some analysts in the past two presidential elections. Utah elected Donald Trump each time, but by only 45% in 2016 and 58% in 2020. Compare that to 2012, when Romney carried the state with 73%.

Utah Republicans are again being asked to decide what candidate best represents their brand of party politics. With Super Tuesday just around the corner, KUER and PBS Utah will hold a “voter round table” with a small group of Gen Z and Millennial Republican voters (between the ages of 18 and 43). KUER politics reporter Sean Higgins will sit down with 5-6 voters who represent different views in the party. We’ll talk about the 2024 presidential race, issues that are driving their decision on who to vote for and the candidates competing for the Republican nomination. The panel will be recorded Saturday, Feb. 24 in the PBS Utah studios.

We’re inviting people who are interested in participating on the panel to respond to a few questions, and a member of KUER’s politics team may be in touch about the Feb. 24 discussion.
