Besides, Romney is a shoe in here. Because of that Hatch will also most likely be reelected. The Democrat Scott Howell is actually more conservative than either Romney or Hatch.
I know nothing about Scott Howell. This is the first I have even heard his name. I do know, though, that with a D after his name, he will vote for Harry Reid for Senate leader (or Nancy Pelosi, if he's running for the House). This makes your opinion of his conservatism irrelevant. He deserves to be defeated. We cannot compromise with Democrats. They must be defeated.
