Hatch Overcomes Primary Challenge

SALT LAKE CITY, UT – Incumbent Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) overcame his first primary challenge in 36 years to defeat former Utah senator Dan Liljenquist.   Attempts to portray Hatch, who was first elected to the Senate in 19676, as “out of touch” or to compare him to recently ousted moderate Sen. Bob Bennett simply didn’t catch with Utah Republicans.
