OGDEN, Utah — The Associated Press projects that Congressman Blake Moore, R-Utah, will be the winner of the 1st Congressional District late Tuesday night.

In the first batch of returns that were announced around 9 p.m., Moore earned nearly 70% of the vote with 116,788 votes. His challenger, Democrat Rick Jones, received 30% of the vote with 51,531 votes cast for him.

What Blake Moore says

“Serving Utah’s First District in Congress is a privilege, and I am grateful for the opportunity to return for a second term to continue bringing Utah’s values to Washington,” Moore said in a news release. “As hardworking families struggle with historic inflation, skyrocketing energy costs, increasing crime, and weak immigration policies, I am more resolved than ever to double down on the Biden administration’s failed approach to our most pressing challenges. My congressional colleagues and I will hold the administration accountable and deliver on legislation to support our families, workforce, and next generation.”

The other congressional districts

The Associated Press also called all of  Utah’s other congressional races for the incumbents. This would be Chris Stewart for the 2nd Congressional District; John Curtis for the 3rd Congressional District; and Burgess Owens for the 4th Congressional District. All four had strong leads when vote tallies were initially released on Election night.
