“The 2nd Congressional District is big and politically complicated—an opportunity as much as a challenge. I love the boundaries of the district and I wouldn’t change them at all. Politics, after all, should be about inclusion not exclusion.”
As we have talked to people around the country about Utah’s 2nd Congressional District, they are surprised at the diversity and intensity of the landscape. The district includes:
This area includes ten full counties (Beaver, Garfield, Iron, Kane, Millard, Piute, Sevier, Tooele, Washington, and Wayne) and significant portions of four more counties (Davis, Juab, Salt Lake, and Sanpete) as well as the whole of Salt Lake City (Utah’s most populous city) and most of West Valley City (#2), St. George (#8), Cedar City (#29), and smaller cities and towns.
