Herrod Floats Potential Hatch Challenge

November 14, 2011

Another potential primary challenger to Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has emerged: state Rep. Chris Herrod, who has crafted a reputation around immigration and was an opponent of a divisive guest worker measure in the state. He also has a group of supporters with a unique moniker. The Provo Daily Herald:

Some Herrod supporters have even gone as far as to call themselves "Herrodtics." The name came in response to a Daily Herald editorial that observed those who opposed HB 116 may have differing opinions on the issue from that of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Herrod said this group came together to show their support to him during a tough battle on the immigration debate.

Herrod hopes to have a decision by the end of the year, the paper reported. State Sen. Dan Liljenquist is also considering a run, and is regarded as a strong potential primary opponent.
