SLTrib – Democrat relies on outsider status, business success in bid for Utah governor

Positioning himself as a political outsider with a record of success in the business world, Michael Weinholtz, the former head of a physician staffing company, is aiming to be the first Democrat in 36 years to be elected as governor of Utah.

“I’ve never run for office, and I think, frankly, that will be part of the appeal,” Weinholtz said in a Tribune interview Thursday. “I think there’s a mood, both in America and Utah, where people are fed up with the political status quo. And I think an outsider, successful businessperson and problem solver might be someone who appeals to those folks.”
