Like McAdams, the Prop 4 supporters relieved and sought to be able to adhere to a higher level of civilization in the future. The future.

Jason Perry, director of the Hinckley Institute of Politics at the University of Utah, said the McAdams-Love race “came to the preliminary votes, the people who appeared on the election day, registered to vote and then voted extensively for Prop 2 [for medicinal marijuana] and Ben McAdams. This was where he gained a lot of land. “

To some extent because of the close McAdams -Love race, Sherrie Swensen, Salt Lake County Clerk, who said in his county, “It was an unprecedented award: 81.93 percent voting for a half-time election.” By comparison, the dividend for both middle levels 2010 and 2014 was only 52 per cent.

At the end of voting after two long weeks, McAdams can focus on future congress work – and he spoke in interviews and press conferences about it.

He will be the only democrat in the Utah congress delegation – which means he will also be only Utahn in the new democratic majority of the United States house but among wizards who have promised not to vote for Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi for to become the new President.

“First of all, I’m on Team Utah before anything. I look forward to working with each member of the delegation,” he said.

“Throughout my public service, I’ve always worked with Republicans – being in the state legislature and Salt Lake County. I am comfortable to reach across the hall, as I have done often. “

To continue opposing Pelosi, he said:” I stated very clearly that I think It’s time for new leadership in Washington. I’m following what I promised and said during the campaign …. It’s time for a new leadership in Washington. “

He mentioned some questions at the top of his agenda.

“I really hope we can address the immigration reform, especially to come up with a solution for” dreamer “young people brought into the country without papers by their parents, McAdams said.

” Utah families need help in the care of health care, their care and healthcare costs. “

He added:” Our state needs investment in transport, in our infrastructure that supports growth and economic development in this district. “[19659002] And he said, “One of the first things we will do is hold a city council meeting for voters to tell me what their priorities are. “McAdams and his supporters had criticized Love for not holding traditional city hall meetings.

With such a small margin of victory, McAdams is likely to face another hard war war in just two years – one and maybe a rematch of love, although other Republicans could be interested in jumping into fray.

(Trent Nelson | Salt Lake Tribune) Rep. Mia Love, R-Utah, Salt Lake City, Wednesday October 17, 2018. [19659006] “This choice showed that the fair variables are not safe for any party,” Perry said. “I think it’s too early to tell if Mia Love will run again. She has been in this position once before when she lost [former Democratic Rep.] Jim Matheson with an equal number of votes. And she came back strongly from that. “

The next election in 2020 would be under presidential elections, which could fade republicans to vote in greater numbers. However, President Donald Trump is not popular in Utah and has lower approval codes in the fourth district than the state.

Prop 2 on medical marijuana, which probably helped McAdams by bringing in younger and non-traditional voters, will not be voted next time.

“I think good public service is the best step towards reelection,” McAdams said. So my focus will be on serving Utah people, meeting meetings, meeting with constituents, listening to them and showing them I’m working hard to represent them. “

He added:” I think is too much campaign and not enough serving. So I plan to spend a lot of time in the next year plus to serve the people. “

McAdams said that he probably won because” this competition was about who was best positioned to earn Utah …. I will have [Utahns’] interests in the heart, not a Washington, DC or partisan agenda. I will put Utah first. “

His campaign manager Andrew Roberts said that no single thing dropped the election to McAdams, but said that McAdam’s bipartisanism message was probably key to gaining support from the district’s vast number of unbound voters.

” His message of crossing for getting things done is what we think in the end resonated with the voters, “he said.

While love campaign reduces interviews until after returning from her Thanksgiving trip, her campaign manager Dave Hansen said it was run in a mid-term election when President Trump is not popular in Utah, hurting love.

“If Hillary Clinton had won the presidency in 2016, it would not be so close,” said Hansen and added that Republicans in the fourth district would have been more happy to help Love and fighting against Clinton.

Rep. Ben Ray Lujan, DN.M., Chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, said Tuesday: “McAdams had to drive a near perfect campaign focused on working families to win victory in Utah – and he did. Congress needs more voices that will fight for what’s right, not for a political party’s position, to achieve real change for Utah’s. “
