SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — The co-founder of the Utah League of Native American Voters is running to challenge U.S. Rep. Chris Stewart of Utah next year.

Democrat Carol Surveyor announced in a statement Friday that she's filed with the Federal Election Commission and is gearing up to run in Utah's 2nd Congressional District.

Surveyor is a vice-chair of the Peaceful Advocates for Native Dialogue and Organizing Support, a Utah Native American and environmental rights organization.

She says she's a single mother of three who knows what it feels like to not be able to afford health care or a home.

Surveyor says she moved to Utah more than a year ago to seek justice for her mother, whose murder on the Navajo Nation is being prosecuted under the Violence Against Women Act.

A message seeking comment from Stewart's campaign was not returned.
