SALT LAKE CITY — Homebuilder Jan Garbett has quietly dropped out of the race for Utah’s 2nd Congressional District.
Garbett filed paperwork with the Utah Lt. Governor’s Office last month, formally withdrawing from the race as the United Utah Party candidate. In a statement posted on her campaign website, she explained why.
“I feel my obligation to the company I helped start and the hundreds of employees and their families dependent on Garbett Homes must come first,” Garbett wrote.
