(KSL News) Republican incumbents across the country are perceiving the end of Utah Rep. Chris Cannon's term in office as the beginning of the end.

The Salt Lake Tribune spoke to members of the National Republican Congressional Committee who say Cannon's primary election loss proves that no Republican incumbent is safe.

Cannon said part of the problem is that Republicans are hurting themselves and have begun to eat their own. He is the third incumbent and second Republican this year to get the boot.

Cannon told Eyewitness News yesterday that he's "pretty happy" about the election results. He says he'll stay involved in politics but without the pressure of being an elected official.
