Utah Election Results Midterms 2022

Elections 2022

(NewsNation) — NewsNation/Decision Desk HQ has called the U.S. Senate race in Utah for incumbent Mike Lee.

Lee, the two-term Republican incumbent candidate, fought off a challenge from Evan McMullin, an Independent former CIA agent.

The state’s U.S. Senate race brought attention to a state that has been safely Republican for many years. 

Lee, who had a significant lead, began feeling the race tighten just weeks before the election as McMullin gained traction as an anti-Trump candidate. Though Lee has former President Donald Trump’s endorsement, he strategically distanced himself from Trump in debates.

The outcome of Utah’s races will likely impact the partisan balance of the U.S. Senate. Of the 100 Senate seats, 35 will see elections during the midterms, including one special election. Democrats have the effective majority with Vice President Kamala Harris as the tie-breaking vote in the 50-50 split chamber.
