SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Delegates at the Utah Republican Party convention will pick a new state chairman from among six candidates.

The latest to jump in by the Thursday deadline: Nancy Lord, a Utah member of the Republican National Committee.

The others are Steve Harmsen, Stan Lockhart, Aaron Bludworth, Ronald Levine and Chris Lawrence. Former U.S. Rep. Enid Greene, who took charge in November, does not want to keep the job.

Greene plans to tell candidates that the next chairman needs to take charge immediately after the June 9 vote. "Someone has to be here Monday morning to turn on the lights and answer the phones. I think they should keep on at least some of the staff," said Greene, who recently fired executive director Jeff Hartley over financial issues.
