Republican convention coming soon

Large numbers of people attended this year’s Republican caucus meetings, and Cache County Republican Party Chairman Boyd Pugmire said he hopes that enthusiasm continues. Pugmire describes the next step for the newly-elected county delegates. “If you are a county delegate, then you’ll attend the county convention, which is on April 11 this year, and at that convention you’ll vote on any resolutions that may be in place, you’ll vote on different candidates that are running,” Pugmire said. There is a local contest between incumbent district 4 state representative David Butterfield and his Republican challenger Edwin Redd. Also, Republican incumbent Cache County Council Member Cory Yeates is challenged by fellow republican Eric Collins. Other candidates with challenges are USU senator, district 1 US representative and state school board member. Pugmire said a candidate needs 70 percent of the county convention vote in order to avoid a primary.
