Liljenquist Will Challenge Hatch

January 4, 2012
Hatch's campaign extended a rather rough welcome to Liljenquist on Wednesday. "It is perplexing to me why a state Senator who hasn't even finished his first term of service in the state and running on the platform of entitlement reform would want to challenge Senator Hatch," said Hatch campaign manager Dave Hansen. "Senator Hatch will be in the best position as Chair of the Senate Finance Committee, to ensure these critical reforms happen and will be instrumental in getting our nation's fiscal house in order. Dan Liljenquist's mantra on entitlement reforms would be little more than a flimsy campaign promise made by someone who would be positioned on a committee that has no influence over fiscal policy." Liljenquist faces several challenges in his bid against Hatch. Name ID is one. Money is another, as Hatch has built a multimillion dollar war chest. But the anger on the right against Hatch is a major card in Liljenquist's hand, if he can coalesce support. Some 3,000 delegates will meet at the end of April at a convention. For a candidate to win the nomination outright there, he/she must receive 60 percent of the vote from delegates at any point (there are several ballots). If no one gets 60 percent, a primary will be triggered. And that's where money will matter more.
