Former NFL player Burgess Owens wins Utah GOP primary
Former NFL player Burgess Owens won the Republican primary in Utah’s 4th District on Tuesday and will face off against Rep. Ben McAdams (D) in November.
Owens, a frequent Fox News commentator, won with 43.4 percent of the vote with 97 percent of precincts reporting, according to The Associated Press, prevailing over three other Republicans, including state Rep. Kim Coleman (R).
He’ll face McAdams, a Blue Dog Democrat who flipped the district in 2018 in a district won by President Trump. McAdams narrowly defeated then-Rep. Mia Love, an up-and-coming Republican.
The Cook Political Report rates the race “lean Democratic.”
