2024 elections: Who will run in Utah's 2nd congressional district now that Republican Chris Stewart accepted a DC lobbying job

Most likely Celeste Maloy (R), who won a special election on November 21, 2023.

The sprawling and gerrymandered 2nd congressional district in Utah cracks Salt Lake City, the most liberal city in the state.  Trump won 56.7% of the vote in 2020.

Instead of cleaning out his congressional office and shipping his belongings a couple thousand miles to his Farmington home, Stewart is setting up shop a couple miles away from Capitol Hill — the firm will join countless others on Washington’s storied K Street. 
Just over 72 hours after Stewart’s final day in office, American Global Strategies — a consultancy co-founded by Utahn Robert O’Brien, the national security adviser to former President Donald Trump — announced a partnership with Skyline Capitol, a new government affairs firm headed by the now-retired representative.

Other dropouts:

Anna Eshoo.  D, CA-16.  (11/29/2023)
Ken Buck.  R,CO-4.  (1128//2023)
