WEST JORDAN, UT – Going into the Utah State Republican Convention this week, Rep. Kim Coleman has established herself as the clear front-runner for the Republican nomination in the 4th Congressional District, having received more local and national endorsements than any of her Republican colleagues. Notably, Coleman announced another high profile endorsement from Stephen Moore, economic adviser to President Trump, who will join her tonight on a Facebook Live event.
The support I’ve received has been overwhelming, whether it has been from national leaders or neighbors on my own street. The current pandemic notwithstanding, America stands at a crossroads: we can continue on the path of freedom and prosperity, or we can let extremists in the Democratic Party take us down the road of government-control, socialism, and ruin. I’m honored that so many people trust me to help keep us on the right path. - Kim Coleman
Coleman is one of only 12 House candidates to receive the support of the House Freedom Caucus, the political action committee founded by Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) – both of whom are also personally backing Coleman’s candidacy. Coleman is endorsed by Congressional Western Caucus chair Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) and by current Freedom Caucus Chair Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) who has also endorsed Coleman, and spoke with her on Facebook Live last Friday.
At the state level, Kim Coleman has drawn endorsements from Saratoga Springs Mayor Jim Miller, Utah County Commissioner Bill Lee, Rep. Cory Maloy, Rep. Cheryl Acton, Sen. Lincoln Fillmore, Rep. Ken Ivory, and many others – including 2018 U.S. Senate convention winner Dr. Mike Kennedy.
Many influential national organizations also support Kim Coleman, including the National Republican Congressional Committee’s “Young Guns,” the National Rifle Association, the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, the Libertas Institute, Americans for Prosperity, and the Utah Taxpayers Association.
Even the best candidates need strong funding to win high-profile races like this contest for Utah’s 4th Congressional District, and no other Republican challenger in our district has ever come close to Kim Coleman’s fundraising muscle. Kim for Utah has raised more $400,000 from 4,000 mostly small-money individual donors. Because Coleman has chosen to go “convention only” – eschewing the signature-gathering loophole designed to circumvent Utah’s delegate system – her campaign has spent zero money collecting signatures. Similar to the fiscally conservative role she has played in the Utah state Legislature, she has been prudent with the donations people have entrusted to her. Kim Coleman and Chris Biesinger are the only two convention-only candidates in the 4th District.
It takes experience to mount a winning campaign, and Kim Coleman is the only candidate on the Republican side who has held elected office. Coleman originally won her seat in the Utah state Legislature by unseating an entrenched incumbent who had 10 times the budget. Coleman believes her experience and fundraising success will allay any concerns delegates may have in her ability to win this important seat back from another entrenched incumbent with millions of dollars on hand.
Kim Coleman is the clear front-runner in this race and the best chance to beat the Democrats in November.
