Republican candidate Paul Miller, an electrician with no prior political experience seeking to appeal to the middle class, won more than 50% of the state delegation vote at the Republican convention in April.

Abortion is one of Utah’s top election issues in the strongly socially conservative Mormon state. While Miller said he would support a national abortion ban, Moore said he would oppose extreme Democratic policies that permit abortion up until birth, according to an interview with the Salt Lake Tribune this month.
