Utah 2nd Congressional District currently serves the largely rural southern and eastern portions of Utah, including Saint George and Moab in the south and Vernal in the east, as well as the east side of urban Salt Lake County, the northern portion of Utah County, and Wasatch County. The current Representative is Democrat Jim Matheson. Even though Republican presidential candidates carry the district by large margins, Matheson's conservative stances keep him in office.

In 2008, Matheson won re-election against Republican Challenger Bill Dew, with a vote percentage of 63.27% to Bill Dew's 34.6%.
