Video from St. George Gubernatorial Debate

Jeff Burningham and the other Republican gubernatorial candidates (Greg Hughes, Aimee Winder Newton, Spencer Cox, Jon Huntsman, and Thomas Wright) participated in their first debate of 2020 on Thursday.

Jeff Burningham said in his opening statement. “We all have the sense that the playbook that’s worked the last 15 years will not lead us into the future. That’s why the campaign for Utah’s next Governor isn’t about yesterday’s ideas or today’s status quo. It’s all about tomorrow’s opportunity…

“I know what it’s like to sit in your seat and and listen to politicians take credit for the economy that the people of Utah have built. I’m here to tell you: a thousand government programs could never compare to what you, the people of Utah, have built.”
