Presidential Candidate Evan McMullin Making Stop in Vernal

Presidential candidate Evan McMullin is making a stop at Vernal City Hall tonight. The announcement made on Thursday claims that a new poll places McMullin at a statistical tie between the two major party candidates among Utah voters. McMullin has gathered an unusual amount of support for someone who joined the race so late in the game and is running on the idea that “it’s never too late to do the right thing” and “it’s time for a new generation of leadership.” As a Mormon himself, McMullin’s message has resonated with Mormons and other conservative christians around the nation. His running partner, Mindy Finn, is running on the principle to “give the American people a vote in which they can take pride.” There is plenty of resistance to the pair’s campaign with many Trump supporters arguing that a vote for McMullin is a vote for Clinton. To hear McMullin make his case for his run on the White House, attend tonight’s Town Hall meeting at Vernal City Hall from 7:00 to 8:00pm. For more information, visit
