SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - All four members of Utah’s delegation to the U.S. House of Representatives are now backing Republican candidate Marco Rubio for president.

U.S. Rep. Jason Chaffetz, a Republican from Utah’s 3rd Congressional District, announced Wednesday he was backing the Florida senator.

Chaffetz said in a statement that Rubio is a conservative who understands challenges facing American families. The statement was released by Rubio’s campaign.

U.S. Reps. Mia Love, Chris Stewart and Rob Bishop previously announced they were backing Rubio.

Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch is backing former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush. GOP Sen. Mike Lee says he is not endorsing any Republican candidate at this point.
