“Orrin Hatch has been in [office] longer than I’ve been alive,” Singer joked.

Billing himself as a millennial’s candidate — his campaign motto is “It’s time for a new generation to represent Utahns” — Singer first thought about a political run during one of the handful of Salt Lake City rallies after President Donald Trump’s inauguration in January. He declared to the crowd of 100 people that “in 2018, there should be native people running in every contest.”

Hatch at last report had $3.5 million in his campaign account.

Singer grew up in Kearns and now lives in Salt Lake City, where he is working on a doctorate in sociology at Utah State University. He is an adjunct professor at Westminster College and Salt Lake Community College. Singer has previously worked at the Diné Policy Institute on the Navajo Nation in Arizona and co-founded the Utah League of Native American Voters. . . .His wife, Carolina, fled Venezuela in 2000. The couple have an 11-month-old daughter.”
