- As he nears a final decision, Attorney General Mark Shurtleff is giving "prayerful consideration" to running for the U.S. Senate.
In an exclusive interview with ABC 4, Shurtleff says he will make a decision about challenging Bob Bennett by the end of next week.
In a very candid interview Wednesday, Attorney General Mark Shurtleff told us he wants to run for senator.
But his wife is a different story.
Mark Shurtleff told us, "She asked for a month to talk me out of it."
Shurtleff's wife, according to the attorney general, has concerns about things like:
...having to commute, being away from the kids, being out of their lives, being out of her life, that's hard."
Shurtleff says he'll decide next week whether to challenge fellow G.O.P. incumbent Bob Bennett.
But the attorney general is quick to add about Bennett:
"He's definitely vulnerable."

Can someone tell us about this person, please?
I never heard of him.
I hope Shutleff runs. Bennett is just not conservative enough, considering his constituancy.
He is the state Attorney General.
He’s a bit of a doofus, but he’s a (generally) conservative doofus.
Bob Bennett, like his fellow Utahn Orin Hatch, went to Washington with good intentions and accomplished some good things. But, like Orin, he has become too infatuated with getting along rather than representing the people who elected him. Utah freepers can probably tell you more about Shutleff. We need leadership in the U.S. Senate, not nice guys who just want to slow the lemming march to socialism.
I like this idea, and hope he runs.
Noticed earlier the people at Buzzflash are going postal about Senator Nelson, tossing the DINO charge. lol. Nelson, turncoat RINOnowDINO Spector and the others are going to drive the libs into headbutting the walls.
From outside Utah looking in neither Bennett or Hatch seem to be speaking for the mostly conservative Utah... though if you read the comment section of the Salt Lake Tribune you’d think they were as liberal as California over there... remember the Tribune endorsed Obama in the election.
p.s. everything I’ve seen of Mark Shurtleff is he is very likeable and has been much more proactive on the Colorado City issue than our own Arizona AG.
POLL: Republicans don’t see congressional GOP representing their interests

At the risk of offending some freeper who’s name I forgot,
I’d support primary challenges to half of them.
