We can expect multiple Republican candidates entering the convention process to decide the GOP nominee.

In Utah, a candidate can win nomination by obtaining 60% of the convention delegates’ support. One must obtain 40% to qualify for a primary. Former Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin, who did well in Utah and finished second in the 3rd District, says he will assess his chances in the open congressional race.
