SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- A survey shows Republican incumbent Mark Shurtleff leading Democratic challenger Greg Skordas by 43 percentage points in the Utah attorney general's race.

The survey of 923 residents was conducted May 10-13 by Dan Jones and Associates for KSL-TV and the Deseret Morning News, which reported the results in a copyright story Wednesday. The poll had a 3 percent margin of error.

Shurtleff was favored by 61 percent of those surveyed, followed by Skordas with 18 percent and Libertarian Andrew McCullough with 4 percent.

"I'm probably about where we would expect to be, since we haven't done any campaigning or advertising," Skordas said. "I've spent my career representing the underdog, so this isn't a new position."

Shurtleff said his strong support validates the job he's done during his term in office.
