Hatch Gets Democratic Opponent

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, is finally getting a challenger -- but not one who's likely to pose a major threat.

The Deseret News reports that Democrat Pete Ashdown, who ran against Hatch in 2006, will announce his campaign later this week. Ashdown received less than half the number of votes Hatch did in 2006.

And here's something you don't see every day: Ashdown's announcement is scheduled for Friday, 11/11 at 1:11 p.m.
