WASHINGTON – The Republican State Leadership Committee (RSLC) released the following statement applauding Governor-elect Spencer Cox and Lieutenant Governor-elect Deidre Henderson on winning their election:
“We are proud to see Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox and state Senator Deidre Henderson advance to become governor and lieutenant governor respectively,” said Austin Chambers, RSLC President. “Utah gained great leadership tonight, and we look forward to working with this duo to enact conservative policies to make life better for Utahns.”
Spencer Cox is from Fairview, Utah where he currently resides with his wife, Abby and their four children. He is a graduate of Snow College, Utah State University and Washington and Lee Law School. He formerly practiced law with Fabian & Clendenin and was Vice President and General Counsel of CentraCom. He has served as a councilman and mayor of Fairview, as a Sanpete County Commissioner and in the Utah House of Representatives.
Deidre Henderson started in public service as a state senator in 2013, where she advocated government transparency, conservative tax policy, and removing barriers for small businesses in Utah. This year, the Libertas Institute awarded her the highest score in the Senate and recognized her as one of their Defenders of Liberty. Senator Henderson is focused on the health, well-being, and economic recovery of Utah.
