As we consider Rubio v Crist, Hayworth v McCain, and the lost opportunity in Illinois (Kirk), it is important for conservatives to now focus on the opportunity to improve the Senate through replacing Utah Senator Bob Bennett. Will we miss this opportunity for we the people to send a clear message to the Republican establishment?
“Mr. Bennett’s primary challengers are millionaire entrepreneur Tim Bridgewater; Internet real estate marketer and conservative activist Cherilyn Eagar; businessman James Russell Williams III; and Mike Lee, a former assistant U.S. attorney and counsel to ex-Gov. Jon Huntsman.”
“A candidate must win 60 percent of the delegate vote at the state Republican convention May 8 to secure the party’s nomination. If no candidate hits 60 percent, the top two finishers face each other in a primary election. Mr. Bennett has already spent more than $500,000 reaching out to potential delegates, who will be chosen at caucus meetings in March.”
So, February is the time to act to impact the March caucus meetings.
Let’s not lose this opportunity for significant improvement of the Republicans in the Senate.
