When I launched my campaign in October I did not know what to expect, but I knew we needed change and decided to step up and try to make it happen.

This campaign has been an amazing experience. I’ve traveled all over Utah’s 2nd District, spoken with thousands of voters, and made many new friends along the way.

Friends like you who took a chance on me and made this campaign possible through your generous donations.

Friends who helped helped place lawn signs all over their neighborhoods.

Friends who took time to reach out to voters all over the district.

And friends who knew that 2022 would be one of the most consequential elections we ever faced.

There’s no way this campaign could have been possible without your help, kindness, and generous support!

And while we came up short of the ultimate goal, I am so proud of what this campaign accomplished over the past few months:

  • I was the first person to ever force Chris Stewart into a Republican primary in his entire 10 year career in Congress.

  • I was the only Republican challenger (House or Senate) to ever out raise their opponent at any point during the campaign. And because of you, I did this without taking a single dime of special interest money!

  • I am the only Republican challenger (House or Senate) to beat their incumbent opponent in Salt Lake County.

These successes were only possible because of your support. You believed in me and powered this campaign to heights no one thought possible. It has been my honor and privilege to campaign with you as we tried to show people that there was a better path forward.

I don’t yet know what the future holds, but I know with friends like you by my side I will always be successful.

Thank you,

Erin Rider
