SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah's governor and a string of fellow Republican officeholders are expected to sweep Tuesday elections on a ballot headlined by GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who ran the 2002 Winter Olympics in Utah.

Polls show Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love with a slight lead over Democratic incumbent Jim Matheson in the 4th congressional district.

Another recent poll gave Gov. Gary Herbert and Sen. Orrin Hatch huge leads over their Democratic challengers, Peter Cooke and Scott Howell.

In other Utah congressional races:

- Donna McAleer says she's raised more money than Rep. Rob Bishop in the 1st District.

- Rep. Jason Chaffetz is expected to breeze over his Democrat and architect Soren Simonsen in District 3.

- In open District 2, former Democratic state legislator Jay Seegmiller is competing against Republican newcomer Chris Stewart.
