Rep. John Curtis Chooses to ⁤Run for Reelection to​ House Seat Instead of Senate Seat

Rep. John Curtis (R-UT) has made the decision not to run for ​Sen. Mitt Romney’s (R-UT) Senate seat. Instead, he will be seeking‍ reelection to his current seat in ⁤the House of Representatives. This comes after Romney announced his retirement from Congress, creating ⁢an open primary for his Senate seat.

Commitment to Constituents​ and Getting the Job Done

In an article for Deseret News, Curtis explained his reasons for not entering the U.S. Senate race. Firstly, he made a commitment to ‍the residents of the 3rd District when he ⁣ran​ for his House ‍seat, and ⁢he believes in fulfilling that ​commitment. He emphasized the importance of elected leaders who prioritize their current ⁢responsibilities over‌ seeking the next job.

“To walk away⁤ now would leave a commitment unfilled. I want to finish the job,” Curtis stated.

Avoiding the Career Politician Path

Curtis’s second reason for not running for the Senate is his aversion to becoming a career politician. He aims to leave Congress once he has accomplished what he set out to do.

Draining Nature of Washington, D.C.

The third reason Curtis​ cited for not pursuing the Senate seat is the draining nature of Washington, ​D.C. He acknowledges the toll it can take on individuals.

Success and‍ Effectiveness in the House

Curtis’s fourth reason is his belief that he is ‍”getting things done” in the House. He ​highlights his‌ recent recognition as the ninth most effective Republican in the body and his office’s recognition for accessibility and accountability.

“I’m getting things done for Utah in⁤ the House. It’s‌ now time to make this investment count by pursuing my priorities with‌ resolve,” Curtis expressed.

With Curtis out of the running, ‍several individuals are expected to⁢ enter the race for the Senate seat in Utah. Utah Republican House Speaker Brad Wilson has already announced his bid, garnering endorsements from state lawmakers.
