    (SALT LAKE CITY, Utah) – Jim Matheson (D-UT) announced that he will not be running for re-election in November 2014. Utah Democratic Party Chair Jim Dabakis issued the following statement Tuesday;

    “We are grateful for Representative Matheson’s many years of dedicated public service. Jim is the latest in a long line of Mathesons who have devoted themselves to being the kind of steward that Utahns can trust. His pragmatic, roll-up-your-sleeves leadership is something rare to find in modern politics, and Utah's Republican Party."

    "Whether the fight was Wasatch Wilderness, ensuring CHIP funding would continue, or fighting on behalf of Utah’s downwinders, Jim has been there when Utah needed him. He has been honorable, consistent, and unrelentingly determined to always put Utah first. His retirement is a loss, not just for Utah, but for the country. We will miss him, and look forward to his next chapter – and to the upcoming fight in Utah’s fourth Congressional district!”
