(KUTV) Twelve of the Republican Party's 14 candidates will appear on the ballot for Utah's presidential caucus in March.
Monday afternoon, the Utah Republican Party released the names of the candidates who met the filing deadline. They are (in alphabetical order) Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Carly Fiorina, Lindsey Graham, Mike Huckabee, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, and Donald Trump.
The two other GOP candidates who will not appear on the ballot are Jim Gilmore and George Pataki.
In order to qualify for the ballot, candidates had to file a letter of intent and pay a fee of $7,500, state party official Cindie Quintana told 2News. More information about Utah's caucus will be forthcoming, she said.
The crowded race for the Republican nomination has seen several front-runners over the past few months. The Des Moines Register reported Monday that Cruz, a Texas senator, has surged into the lead in Iowa -- the first state that will go to the polls.
