Candidates for Utah attorney general contrasting experience
The two men competing for the Republican nomination to be Utah's attorney general are contrasting their experience amid calls for criminal justice reform.
Utah County Attorney David Leavitt was extremely critical of current Attorney General Sean Reyes during a televised debate yesterday.
Leavitt attacked Reyes for accepting campaign contributions from Jacob Kingston, who was later convicted of fraud in connection with his company, Washakie Renewable Energy.
Reyes defended his record as attorney general, calling Leavitt inexperienced and saying his plans would cost too much money.
Voters will choose between the two candidates at the end of this month.
Reyes defended himself against Leavitt's accusation, saying there were no indications that accepting money from Kingston was a problem.
