Third District Congressman Chris Cannon is facing a double whammy for his failed re-election campaign.
Not only did Cannon endure the embarrassment of being ousted in his party's primary, he's now $328,000 in debt. When you take away the $138,000 he owes himself, he still is in the hole $190,000.
Cannon's chief of staff tells The Salt Lake Tribune his boss is still raising money, despite the fact he's a lame duck. He says it's a little tougher sell, but people are ponying up. Jason Chaffetz, the candidate who beat Cannon in the primary, has $18,000 on hand heading into the fall. Democrat Bennion Spencer has a few thousand dollars.
