Skip to comments.Utah: Romney Urges Support for Hatch in Ad
Posted on 03/02/2012 3:13:29 PM PST by Clintonfatigued
Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) is leaning on one of the most well-known names in the state to help him win a seventh term.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney, who is heading into the final weekend before Super Tuesday, lent his voice to a radio ad launched today by the Hatch campaign.
In the ad Romney, who endorsed Hatch in September, explains the importance of Hatchs potential chairmanship of the Senate Finance Committee one of Hatchs leading arguments for re-election and encourages voters to attend local precinct caucuses on March 15 to elect delegates to the state convention.
We need strong leadership in Congress to help fix the economy, Romney says in the ad. Sen. Orrin Hatch will lead the powerful Finance Committee, which will be critical to lowering taxes, balancing the budget and repealing the federal government takeover of health care.
The Hatch campaign has been working for more than a year to elect Hatch-supporting delegates at the precinct caucuses across the state. Those delegates will attend the April state convention, where either a nominee can emerge with at least 60 percent of the vote or the top two finishers advance to a primary.

Mark Levin is also backing Hatch.
Temple Mormon, Reid, runs the Senate, and Mormon Bishop Mitt Romney is hoping to lead the Executive branch, Mormon Senator Hatch could be important.
THis does not exactly give Hatch conservative credibility.
If Mitt has his way, the Mormons will soon be running all three branches. Evidently that was Joseph Smith’s vision.
People in UT have no idea of Orrin G. Hatch’s destructive legacy. All they know is that he wears an “R” label.
Maybe the Mormon religion’s leaders won’t notice.

The majority leader of the U.S. Senate and the most senior Republican senator are two of the 15 Church members serving in the 112th United States Congress this year. The members were sworn in Jan. 5.
To me it only says that Mormons are sticking together.
I agree. Dan Liljenquist looks like a true conservative alternative to Hatch. Hatch talks the conservative talk but when it comes to walking the walk he frequently leaves the path and goes strolling hand-in-hand with his progressive friends inside the beltway.
