The candidate, a Davis County commissioner and the former mayor of Layton, became the first to submit the required number of signatures, according to his campaign. However, the lieutenant governor’s office must review the signatures to make sure they’re from eligible voters.
“My plan was to collect the signatures as early as possible and get that part of the campaign out of the way. I am now concentrating on meeting with Republican state delegates, caucus attendees and other voters in the first district. This is the part of the campaign I really love,” Stevenson said in a statement.
