Summit County voters chose Mitt Romney as their Republican candidate for U.S. Senate, and Lee Castillo as their Democratic candidate for U.S House District 1 in Tuesday's primary election.  Romney will face Democrat Jenny Wilson in the race for retiring Senator Orrin Hatch's seat.  Castillo defeated Kurt Weiland and will go up against incumbent Republican Rob Bishop in November.   For State Senate District 26, Democrat Eileen Gallagher defeated Pat Vaughn.  She will face Republican Ronald Winterton in the race for retiring Sen. Kevin Van Tassell's seat.

Ronald Winterton (R) and Eileen Gallagher (D) won their primaries for State Senate District 26. They will face each other in the November election for retiring Senator Kevin Van Tassell's seat. In the Republican race, Park City resident Jack Rubin won handily in Summit and Wasatch Counties, but Winterton got more votes in Duchesne and Uintah Counties. Gallagher defeated challenger Pat Vaughn by only ten votes in Wasatch County, but dominated the race in the other counties. State Senate District 26 covers Summit, Wasatch, Daggett, Duschesne and Uintah counties.

Wasatch County primary election results:  Mitt Romney and John Curtis won big in the county.   Incumbent Wasatch County Attorney Scott Sweat defeated three challengers.  Marilyn Crittenden and Jeff Wade prevailed in the Wasatch County Council races.  And Eileen Gallagher has only ten more votes than Pat Vaughn in the Democratic primary for State Senate District 26.  However, Gallagher won by a wide enough margin in other counties to win the race.  She will challenge  Republican Ronald Winterton for retiring Senator Kevin Van Tassell's seat.
