Hatch Agrees to Debate Liljenquist One More Time

May 9, 2012

Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has agred to debate former state Sen. Dan Liljenquist once before the June 26 primary. It's not the number Liljenquist, who needs to build name ID, wants. But it has the potential to add some stretch-run intriguie to the campaign if Liljenquist can tighten the gap during the next few weeks. The Salt Lake Tribune:

Liljenquist said that, during two debates leading up to the April 21 state GOP convention, delegates who saw the candidates side-by-side abandoned Hatch, and the campaign is afraid that will happen again.

"I completely understand their reluctance to have him be in front of the people of the state of Utah in an environment that can't be controlled," Liljenquist said.

Hatch's campaign manager, Dave Hansen, said Hatch is not dodging debates. He noted the two debates before the convention and said that Hatch simply doesn't have time for more debates because of a packed Senate schedule in the coming weeks.

The single debate is scheduled to be held on KSL radio's "Doug Wright Show" in late June
