Candidates are in the process of filing to seek a party nomination in the November 2017 special U.S. House election in Utah. Here is a list of such candidates. Two candidates filed, saying they want the Independent American nomination: Aaron Heineman and Jason Christensen. If they both have substantial support at the party’s nominating convention, the government will hold a primary for the Independent American Party to choose between them. It is believed this would be the first time this party will have had a primary.
