PROVO — Utah County Republicans have elected a replacement for Rep. Stephen Sandstrom, R-Orem, in House District 58.
Businessman and attorney Keven Stratton will serve the remainder of Sandstrom's term, which expires at the end of the year. Under newly drawn legislative boundaries, House 58 will cease to exist as a Utah County seat on Dec. 31.
The new district is House 48, where Stratton is a candidate. He faces a June 26 primary election with Provo businessman Taz Murray.
Sandstrom resigned earlier this year to run for Congress. He lost at the state GOP convention.
Stratton's election will be submitted to Gov. Gary Herbert, who makes the official appointment to the House.
