There are 94 state or federal-level offices up for election on Tuesday.
Here are my predictions for those races.
Please note these are just predictions, not endorsements.
I don’t expect too many surprises as off-year elections have low turnout, which tends to favor Republicans.
The race in Utah’s 4th Congressional District is a tight one, but Republican Mia Love will likely win by 3-4 percentage points. Democrat Doug Owens was closing in the final days of the race, but he will run out of time.
I see Democrats coming away with a net gain of 1 seat in the Utah Legislature. The Senate makeup will remain the same with 5 Democrats and 24 Republicans, but the House will be 60 Republicans and 15 Democrats.
Republican Sophia DiCaro should knock off longtime Democrat Larry Wiley in West Valley for the lone GOP pickup this year. However, Democrats Diane Lewis and Brad King will win seats currently held by Republicans.
Now, without further ado, here are my picks for the 2014 election.
