SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Republican businessman Bob Fuehr has jumped into the race to replace longtime Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson in Utah’s Fourth Congressional District.

Fuehr, former telecommunications executive, filed papers to run Tuesday and will square off against former Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love for the GOP nomination in April.

Love, who narrowly lost to Matheson in 2012, is well-positioned this year with more name recognition and cash and no incumbent to unseat.

Love filed papers on Monday to run, as did Democrat Doug Owens, a son of the late U.S. Rep. Wayne Owens.

Another Democrat, Bill Peterson, has filed to run, as has Libertarian candidate Jim Vein, who ran for the seat in 2012.
