Some have suggested former Rep. Mia Love, who lost a squeaker to McAdams in 2018 may be eyeing a rematch next year, but several Republican sources say Love, who is a commentator on CNN, is not interested in a campaign next year.
McAdams is seen as one of the most vulnerable Democrats in Congress heading into the 2020 election. UT04 has a partisan lean of R+13, meaning it is 13-points more Republican than the national average. It is one of 31 districts held by a Democrat that Donald Trump won during the 2016 race. McAdams won his 2018 race by less than 700 votes in the heavily Republican district.
Anderson will inevitably face questions about her residency as she lives in Bountiful, which is far outside of the boundaries of the 4th district. However, that may not be a problem as McAdams also lives outside of the district boundaries and still won the 2018 midterm election. Jason Chaffetz also lived outside of his Congressional district when he first won election.
