(KSL News) Governor Huntsman wants Utah to hold a presidential primary election next year.
But a primary election doesn't come cheap. It has a price tag of $3.5 million. Last year, lawmakers set aside $850,000 for a February 5 primary.
California has already committed to a primary that day, and other states are considering one for that date as well.
Huntsman has been pushing for two years to have an early western states primary.
