2014 Election Race Ratings: Utah House (Updated 10/02/2014)

Here's our latest look at the 2014 races for Utah House. All 75 seats are up for election this year. 

Democrats look to be on the defensive, as Republicans could increase their already sizeable majority on the Hill.

Heading into the 2014 election, there are 61 Republicans and 14 Democrats on the Hill. The only two seats we see as pure "toss-up" are currently in the Democratic column. It's quite possible Utah's minority party could dip to a dozen seats after the 2014 election.

With the number of "safe" and "solid" GOP seats, Republicans head into the 2014 election with their supermajority in the Legislature virtually assured.

Our rating scale:

  • "Safe" seats mean there is no challenger from the opposing party.
  • "Solid" means the seat is likely to remain in that party's control.
  • "Lean" means the party should keep control of the seat, but it's in some doubt because of a retirement or strong challenger.
  • "Toss-up" means control of the seat is in doubt.
