FOX 13′s Max Roth talks to Dan Liljenquist about his politics and how he feels like he’s been given a second chance at life.

The 37-year-old Davis County resident served in the Utah Senate from January 2009 to December 2011 when he resigned to start his bid for US Senate against 6-term incumbent Orrin Hatch.

The primary is June 26 and we badly need for Utah conservatives to go all out for Liljenquist. The TEA Party caucus isn’t big enough on Capitol Hill, espeically in the Senate.

I am pretty sure that even if UT were sick of Hatch it wouldn’t support someone with such an unusual surname, though occassionally such names are not a liability. People are so conventional that they prefer stick with their familiar (liberal) names.

If I was in Utah, I’d hold my house for Liljenquist (the best of two flawed candiates), although Impy’s probably right that Liljenquist’s chances are DOA after he came out in favor of raising taxes.

I used to think that about Illinois voters given the lopsided number of guys with easy-to-pronounce Irish-sounding last names in office, but then Illinois' elected Rod R. Blagojevich, Barack Hussein Obama, Alexi Giannoulias (for state treasurer, anyway) and Rahm Emanuel. Liljenquist has problems that go beyond his surname.

New BYU Poll

Hatch 56%

Liljenquist 25%

Deseret News/KSL-TV poll

Hatch 60%

Liljenquist 32%

And I don’t think his name is much of a factor (aside from how many people don’t recognize it, which Liljenquist himself claims as his biggest problem)
