BONNEVILLE Talk KSL-A-F/SALT LAKE CITY host DOUG WRIGHT is pulling out of the Republican primary race for Congress in UTAH's 2nd COngressional District.
WRIGHT told the SALT LAKE TRIBUNE that "the Republicans have a notorious reputation for fighting each other rather than focusing on the ultimate goal of reclaiming the 2nd District seat (from incumbent Democrat JIM MATHESON). I fear we're heading down the same path." WRIGHT never formally declared his candidacy but met with party leaders in WASHINGTON and was widely expected to make a run for the seat.
