SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah voters are set to head to the polls to decide a handful of key races in the state's primary ahead of the November elections.

Races on Tuesday include a challenge to incumbent U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch by former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist, the race to replace retiring Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, the presidential primary, with Mitt Romney the heavy favorite, one U.S. House seat and 17 state House and Senate seats.

Hatch missed the outright nomination at April's convention, falling short by fewer than three dozen votes from the nearly 4,000 delegates.

Two Republicans are vying to replace Shurtleff, including his chief deputy, while two Constitution Party candidates face off to challenge Gov. Gary Herbert along with an uncontested Democrat.
