Candidate of the Week: Super Bowl Champ Burgess Owens (UT-04)

Super Bowl Champion Burgess Owens has been named Donald Trump Jr.’s MAGA Candidate of the Week!

BIO (Meet Burgess):

  • Burgess Owens is a former All-Pro Jets and Raiders safety, leading Oakland in tackles during its 1980 Super Bowl season.
  • After an illustrious career at the University of Miami, the NY Jets’ first-rounder was named to the NFL’s All-Rookie team
  • Post football, Burgess has devoted his life to helping the next generation of leaders, establishing Second Chance 4 Youth, a non-profit in Utah.
  • Owens is an outspoken conservative.

RACE:

  • In November, Burgess Owens will be on the ballot facing Democrat Greg Sagan.
  • The Cook Political Report says UT-04 is a ‘lean democratic’ district, giving it a slight blue incumbent advantage for 2020.
  • However, Cook’s partisan voting index (PVI) rates Utah’s 4th district +13 for the GOP, so defeating Democratic incumbent Ben McAdams will depend on Republicans getting to the ballot box.

QUOTES:

  • “In #UT04, we believe in the American values that grants all a pathway to the remarkable middle class… ‘Education, Faith, Industry and Family.’ President Trump is a loving leader who is fighting tooth and nail to preserve those values and our country.”
  • “I’m a proud American, proud of my history and proud of that flag.”

TRUMP’S TAKE:

  • “Congratulations, @BurgessOwens, on your impressive primary victory! A Super Bowl Champion, Burgess knows how to WIN. Strong on Life, Military, Vets and the #2A, he will always fight for Utah. Burgess has my Complete and Total Endorsement!”
  • “An amazing guy. Burgess is what we need in Washington, tough and smart!”
