Sen. Or­rin Hatch (R) said Wed­nes­day that he may run for reelec­tion 2018. Hatch, who had pre­vi­ously an­nounced he would re­tire at the end of his term, said “cir­cum­stances have greatly changed, so I’ll have to look at it.”

Former pres­id­en­tial can­did­ate Evan McMul­lin (R) did not rule out a bid in 2018. Of a pos­sible McMul­lin chal­lenge, Hatch jok­ingly said, “That’d be his right, but that’d be a big mis­take.”

“Utah Re­pub­lic­ans rumored to be con­sid­er­ing a run for Hatch’s seat in­clude former Gov. Jon Hunts­man (R), At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Sean Reyes (R) and state Sen. Deidre Hende­r­son (R).” (Roll Call/Salt Lake Tribune)
