PROVO, Utah (AP) — Republican candidates vying for the seat vacated by U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz are set to debate topics ranging from healthcare to religious freedom.
Candidates John Curtis, Chris Herrod and Tanner Ainge are expected to appear at the Utah Valley Convention Center for the Friday night debate.
The event is hosted by the Hinckley Institute of Politics and The Salt Lake Tribune. It will be moderated by Tribune editor Jennifer Napier-Pearce and Hinckley Institute director Jason Perry.
Curtis is the mayor of Provo, Christopher Herrod is a former lawmaker and Tanner Ainge is an investment adviser and son of Boston Celtics general manager Danny Ainge.
The candidates will face off in a Republican primary election in August. The winner will go up against Democratic physician Kathie Allen and other third-party candidates.
