Blanding resident and Republican Primary Gubernatorial candidate Phil Lyman announced Natalie Clawson as his selection for Lieutenant Governor running mate on May 3. The announcement came following a ruling that declared Layne Bangerter ineligible for the position based on a Utah Constitutional requirement that candidates be a citizen of the state for five years prior to running for office.
Bangerter was a resident of Idaho as late as 2021.
Bangerter was nominated as Lyman’s Lt Governor candidate at the state Republican convention.
According to a release from the Lyman campaign Clawson, a Utah county resident, was admitted to the Utah State Bar in 2003, and has been involved in local politics including as a sponsor of the Secure Vote Utah initiative. 
Lyman earned a spot on the June 25 Republican primary ballot by earning 67-percent of delegate votes at the Republican State Convention. Also on the ballot is Incumbent Governor Spencer Cox who earned a spot on the primary ballot after gathering more than 30,000 signatures from registered Republicans.
