Rep. Chris Herrod spoke with God Day Utah on Thursday morning about his campaign for the U.S. Senate. He currently holds a position in the Utah House of Representatives.
Rep. Herrod, a Republican, said he believes policies in the country are becoming more socialized and he knows from his experience aboard that it is not a good direction.
"I think we're facing some critical times. I want to make sure they have the same opportunities that I did growing up," said Rep. Herrod, speaking about the future for his five children.
"What I don't see from our current administration back east is a sense of urgency that we're headed in the wrong direction," said Rep. Herrod. "And that's what I want to bring, and plus my experiences of seeing where we seem to be headed now."
The Republican caucus is being held through out neighborhoods in Utah on March 15.
