Presidential Candidate Visits Make For Big Day in Utah

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) –  Utah Voters are feeling more like their votes count especially now that presidential hopefuls aren’t skipping over the Beehive State.
“I wish that our votes always made a difference. Sometimes I feel like by the time they get to this point the decisions already been made so it’s kind of nice to make a difference,” said Michelle Law, Utah voter. 
Law says she thinks it’s wonderful John Kasich, Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and Ted Cruz aren’t forgetting about Utah. Though she’s still undecided who she will vote for, it’s possible their visit could make a difference. Ohio Governor John Kasich is making multiple appearances Friday around town including the University of Utah. Then he making his way down to St. George on Saturday. Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders is rallying at The Gardens at This is the Place Heritage Park. Donald Trump will host a rally at the Infinity Event Center Friday at 7 p.m. and Ted Cruz expected Saturday.
Some voters say they just hope all the candidates stay focused on real issues. 
“I think the main thing is they need to be real. No BS. They need to be really speaking what they are really going to stand for if they become the true nominated president,” said Jeremy Alexander. 
“I would love to hear them talk about issues Utahns really care about like public lands and national monuments that kind of thing,” said Law. 
As for Hilary Clinton’s decision, so far not to visit Utah, some voters seem to think it’s not a good move.
“I think that will definitely hurt her but I think in the long run she has so much support across the country that I don’t think she has too much to worry about at this point,” said Kelvin Minefee.
