Sen. Or­rin Hatch (R) drew “po­lite ap­plause” at Utah’s Re­pub­lic­an Con­ven­tion over the week­end and did not give a speech, “prob­ably the first time that has happened in the half-cen­tury Hatch has been com­ing to Utah state GOP con­ven­tions.” Hatch, who was not booed at all, “was wor­ried about a hos­tile re­cep­tion in the be­fore the del­eg­ates.” He was not “roundly cheered,” either. The sen­at­or’s pre­sumed 2018 cam­paign man­ager Dave Hansen, be­fore­hand, had or­gan­ized Hatch’s “ap­pear­ance very care­fully.” (Utah­Policy.com)

Hatch has not form­ally an­nounced he will seek reelec­tion, though he has hin­ted he is pre­par­ing to run again.
