The man thought to be the Republican leadership’s top candidate recruitment prospect to challenge freshman Rep. Ben McAdams (D-Salt Lake City), state Sen. Dan McCay (R-Riverton), said yesterday that he will not run for Congress. Mr. McAdams unseated then-Rep. Mia Love (R) in one of the tightest elections in the country last year, a win of less than two votes per precinct. Even without Mr. McCay as their candidate, Republicans will find a top-notch opponent to challenge what should be a vulnerable freshman Democrat in the coming election.
