Trestin Meacham

Trestin Meacham was a 2012 Constitution Party candidate for District 24 of the Utah State Senate; he lost the election by garnering only 13% of the vote. In December 2013, he launched a two-week hunger strike hoping to convince Utah to exercise the option of “nullification” regarding a federal court ruling to allow same-sex marriage in Utah. He ended the fast after the U.S. Supreme Court issued a stay in the federal court ruling, pending its appeal. He has since stated his “mission in life” is to fight against the “homosexual movement.”
