One Step Forward, One Step Back

Meanwhile, Levin had told Hatch on his show Tuesday, "It would be a sad place in the Senate if we knocked you off in the Republican system in Utah," and after seeing that FreedomWorks had targeted Hatch, posted a critical note on his Facebook page. Levin wrote that FreedomWorks head Dick Armey "had a radical, open-borders, pro-amnesty position record in Congress and has recently endorsed that position as head of FreedomWorks. Do most Tea Party activists agree? Of course not. This is what happens when decisions are run out of offices in Washington. The Tea Party movement is a grassroots movement." The mixed bag of endorsements illustrates the steep road Hatch is climbing in his attempts to reach out to Utah Tea Partiers -- something Sean Sullivan wrote about here last week. -- Kathy Kiely contributed to this post
