Ben McAdams is a seventh generation Utahn who was raised in a family of eight. He was elected twice as mayor of Salt Lake County. As mayor, he tackled homelessness, formed partnerships with the private sector, and managed a balanced budget. While in the Utah State Senate, he fought for consumer protection legislation. In Congress, McAdams serves on the House Financial Services Committee and the House Science, Space and Technology Committee. McAdams flipped his district in 2018, helping Democrats take the majority in the House of Representatives.
In office, McAdams helped pass H.R. 1, the For the People Act, which is the most comprehensive anti-corruption and democracy reform bill to pass the House since Watergate. The bill is being denied a fair vote by Mitch McConnell and the special interests who control the U.S. Senate. H.R. 1 would take on dark money and foreign interference in our elections, fix our broken campaign finance system, tighten ethics laws, crack down on lobbyists, limit partisan gerrymandering used to manipulate elections, and expand and protect the right to vote. McAdams represents a swing district, and faces a tough re-election fight in 2020.
