OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- A candidate for mayor of Salt Lake City is looking outside of the capital city for support and donations.

Former City Councilman Keith Christensen says he is seeking support from those who can't vote for him because he believes Salt Lakes success impacts the entire state.

Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson is not seeking a third term and nine others are seeking to replace him.

On Tuesday, Christensen is holding a fundraiser in Ogden.

Frank Guliuzza, chairman of the political science department at Weber State University, says Christensen's decision to go outside of the Salt Lake voter base doesn't make sense to him.

However, Guliuzza says his strategy might help Christensen achieve greater name recognition.
