PROVO, Utah (AP) - A 25-year-old college student from Provo hoping to get his peers more active in politics says he’s running for Utah’s Legislature.

Colby Johnson announced Monday he’s running as a Republican for the Utah House District 63, which is currently represented by Republican Dean Sanpei.

Johnson tells KSL-TV (https://bit.ly/1dV04Wf) that college students make up 84 percent of the district and he wants to engage them with his campaign.

The Utah Valley University student says his main goals are to inspire other students and engage them in the process.

Sanpei, a vice-president at Intermountain Healthcare, says in a statement that his experience helps him represent students and other citizens in the district.

He says he’s proud of the support and trust he’s received while representing the district for the last four years.
