Who am I?

Hello and welcome to my official page. My name is Darlene McDonald and I’m running for the United States House of Representatives to represent Utah District 4. This congressional seat is currently held by Representative Mia Love.

I’m new on the political scene. I’ve never held public office, but I’m not new to politics. I’m passionate about issues that impact the everyday lives of the people of Utah, the people of this country, and people around the world. The reason why that’s important is because our representatives are sent to Washington to represent the voice of their constituents. Too many of us have been ‘voiced out’. Our voices ARE NOT being represented in Washington.


Our campaign will only be as strong as our volunteers – folks from around the state who are willing to lend their time and energy to strengthening our state and our nation. Take the first step in your community by signing up now.
