Eric Eliason is running for Congress to represent Utah’s 1st Congressional District, but he has chosen not to run on a ticket with other candidates. Instead, Eliason has associated himself with the United Utah Party and he says he believes he made the right decision.
Eliason says this way people can accept some parts of the Republican or Democratic party platforms without having to necessarily having to support them all.
“They say ethics and transparency are just totally messing up our system right now,” Eliason continues. “It’s all about the money, following the money, and wow, that really needs to change right now.
“Then, term limits, 80-percent of Americans favor term limits. I think we both know 30 people who would be better than Rob Bishop, or myself, or Lee Castillo.”
Eliason says there are 18 candidates this year running on the United Utah Party ticket throughout the state, but he is the only one north of Davis County.
