The challenger to Utah Representative Mel Brown, (R) Coalville, is hanging on to his lead in the Republican primary race for Utah House District 53. The district covers parts of Summit, Daggett, Rich, Duchesne and Morgan counties. On election night, Wilde finished ahead by 64 votes. But Kent Jones, Summit County Clerk, indicated there could be some ballots that were mailed in time, but hadn't arrived yet. On Friday, Jones said his office counted an additional 305 ballots and Mel Brown had moved ahead by seven votes.
