SANDY, Utah (AP) - The chairman of Utah’s Republican Party is urging party faithful to make sure they vote in November even if they are not a fan of Donald Trump.

Instead of supporting their presumptive presidential nominee, GOP leaders say their strategy will be to emphasize voter turnout so as not to undermine Utah Republicans on the ticket.

Trump won only 14 percent of the vote in Utah’s presidential caucus.

GOP Chairman James Evans told state central committee members in Sandy Saturday that skipping the election is not an option, especially in Salt Lake County where Congresswoman Mia Love is in a tight race for re-election.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune, (https://tinyurl.com/zyc9z72) Evans said the top-of-the-ticket race between Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton has become a contest of “who do you hate the least.”
