To watch the live feed from the Utah Republican Convention, go to the url above. Senate Candidates are giving their statements now.
Mike Lee is just finishing his speech. He’s the leading candidate against Sen, Bob Bennett, Bennett was intro’d by Mitt Romney.
Cherilyn Eagar is now up. She’s the candidate endorsed by Joe the Plumber and the Eagle Forum.
I really hope Lee wins.
I moved over the border to western Colorado. It was like passing through Checkpoint Charlie into the American Sector!
The first round of voting has just begun.
Lee has been endorsed by
# Mark Levin, radio talk show host, author and political commentator
# Erick Erickson, Editor RedState.com
# Former House Majority Leader Dick Armey
# Freedom Works PAC
The Palestinians will have a two state solution before we can go back home !
Tim Bridgewater 26.84%;
Bob Bennett 25.84%;
Jeremy Friedbaum .47%;
Leonard Fabiano .64%;
Merrill Cook 1.43%
David Chiu .12%;
Mike Lee 28.75%;
Cherilyn Eagar 15.84%;
Bridgewater, Bennett and Lee go into the second round.
This ought to be interesting.
What nees to happen here?
Is there a threshold that a candidate (or candidates) must hit in order to move on to the primary?
Update: Lee finished with 37% of the vote to Bridgewater’s 35% of the vote. Bennett finished with 27% of the vote.
On to the third round (and almost certainly a primary on 22 June)
FN reporting Bennett is OUT. Let’s hope the same thing happens to all RINOs and moderates. Conservative victory is around the corner.
