Former NFL-Player Burgess Owens Wins Utah 4th Congressional District Race Against Ben McAdams

Congressman-elect Burgess Owens got the call Monday that he’d been waiting for from Utah’s only Democrat in Congress, Rep. Ben McAdams, conceding their 4th Congressional District race that has been too close to call since Election Day on Nov. 3. “I received a call from @BenMcAdams,” Owens tweeted afterward. “He expressed appreciation for the opportunity to serve #UT04 and his commitment to a smooth transition. My sincere thanks to him for both. Thank you my fellow Utahns, I am committed to have an open ear to serve you. Thank you for the opportunity.” Owens, 69, a former NFL player, author and frequent Fox News guest, is the second Black Republican elected to Congress from Utah. He is in Washington, D.C., meeting with other newly elected members of Congress and GOP leaders.
