SALT LAKE CITY — Utah Attorney General Mark Shurleff has endorsed Jason Buck's candidacy for Congress in Utah's 2nd Congressional District.
"I've met a lot of candidates in my lifetime, and I can truly say that Jason Buck is one of the most impressive individuals I've had the opportunity to support," Shurtleff said in a statement.
