Utah Attorney General Candidate Sean Reyes Heads Into Final Week With Tremendous Momentum & Utah Support

SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - Jun 18, 2012) - With early voting underway and less than 10 days until the Primary, Utah Attorney General Candidate Sean Reyes today publicly expressed his thanks for the overwhelming support he has received from the delegate, legal, and business communities since the Utah Republican Convention.

According to Reyes: "The message I hear around the state is loud and clear: the voters don't want politics as usual. That is a key reason for why my campaign resonates with the average citizen. They are tired of special interests and political agendas getting in the way of good policies and the protection of Utah citizens."

The latest show of this support came from the Salt Lake Tribune editorial board. In an opinion piece on Saturday, the state's main daily endorsed Sean Reyes for Attorney General, basing their decision primarily on his legal expertise and the fact that although he is running for a political office, he presents the best for the office of Attorney General in a non-political manner. Noting this difference, the Salt Lake Tribune's editorial board wrote: "...three terms of Shurtleff were enough, and extending that reign with Swallow is not a good idea. It's time for new management, and Sean Reyes would provide it."

"I am honored to receive the Salt Lake Tribune's support," said Reyes, who launched testimonial-based TV and radio advertisements paid for by the Reyes campaign over the past weekend as well. "Protecting states' rights, personal rights, and family rights is my commitment to the state of Utah. Utahns deserve the hardest working and most qualified Attorney General and I am humbled yet prepared to fulfill this role."

Sean D. Reyes currently serves as General Counsel for eTAGZ and was formerly a partner at Utah's largest firm, where he spent 14 years handling large, complex litigation, trials and appeals. He was named the first-ever "National Outstanding Young Lawyer" in 2007 by the American Bar Association and has earned numerous state and national awards in law and business.

Reyes has dedicated countless hours to establishing, leading and serving on non-profit and charitable boards benefiting causes such as education, law enforcement, constitutional issues as well as fighting pornography and investment fraud. He has also served on boards and in leadership roles for legal, business, civic, religious and political organizations.
