SALT LAKE CITY — As part of Fox 13’s election coverage, we are looking at television ads that make negative assertions about a candidate to let you know if they are fact or fiction and if they are fudging the truth.

In the race for Utah’s 4th Congressional District, two ads are running against Burgess Owens, the Republican challenger to Ben McAdams, that make claims about Owens' record and positions.

In the story above, you’ll see what we found out when looking into ads about Owens’ bankruptcies and what he has said about nuclear weapons testing.

If you would like to hear the interview we refer to with the answer about nuclear testing, you can find it here.
