Local Politics

LEHI, Utah (ABC4 News) – All eyes were on Utah County with Congresswoman Mia Love telling supporters she is encouraged by the latest numbers dump putting her within three points of her opponent Ben McAdams.

Lines at polling places were so long in Utah County that when Congresswoman Love addressed supporters after 11 p.m., she acknowledged people were still in line.

She says the numbers appear to be trending in her favor and her gut says she will win re-election.

 “It’s a really good trajectory. We’re seeing about 74 to 75 percent of Utah County’s votes going our way—this is really good news,” said Love late Tuesday night.

As of midnight, McAdams was leading Love with 52 percent of the vote.
