MEDIA RELEASE: Colby Jenkins Calls for More Debates

ST. GEORGE (May 22, 2024) – After taking first place at the Utah Republican Party state convention, Republican Colby Jenkins is challenging his opponent to agree to the same challenge she issued just months ago – having 13 primary debates, one in every county represented within Utah’s 2nd congressional district.

He issued the following statement:

“I think my opponent said it best last year when she issued this exact challenge – Republicans deserve a robust debate on policies that directly impact their lives and the direction of our country. I urge her to accept my invitation to show up and give voters in the 2nd District a better understanding of our positions on the key issues facing this district and our country. Since her campaign message is about showing up, and she issued this very challenge just months ago, she should have no problem agreeing to what was originally her idea.”

Debates should take place in Beaver, Davis, Garfield, Iron, Juab, Kane, Millard, Piute, Salt Lake, Sevier, Tooele, Washington, and Wayne counties.

Colby Jenkins is a former Green Beret Special Forces combat veteran with nearly 30 years of military service. He has been endorsed by Senator Mike Lee, Senator Rand Paul, former Trump administration official Kash Patel, the House Freedom Fund, and 57% of Utah Republican Party state delegates from Utah’s 2nd congressional district.
