Wednesday, we're wrapping up our Meet the Candidates series at the Hinckley Institute of Politics as Doug sits down with Republican Governor Gary Herbert. Herbert became Utah’s Governor when Jon Huntsman resigned in 2009 and he easily won in a special election the following year. Now, he points to the state's economic growth and job creation to make the case for his reelection. We'll talk to Gary Herbert about the challenges that Utah still faces and his plans for overcoming them.
