Utah

3 seats: 3R     R 66

Democrats' projected performance actually improved in Utah in 1996, but the state remains heavily Republican. Democrats will be hard-pressed to win seats; they lost their best chance when controversial incumbent Merrill Cook was defeated in a primary -- one of three House incumbents to lose in primaries from 1996 to August 2000.
