Shurtleff to Challenge Bennet

Senator Bob Bennet (R-UT) is going to face a solid challenge for his seat from Attorney General Mark Shurtleff. Via the Deseret News:

The winds of change, they are a-blowin’,” Shurtleff proclaimed Wednesday. “Not the bigger-government, corporate-welfare, radical-liberal-nannyism kind of change promised and now being implemented by (President Barack) Obama.”

Shurtleff is challenging incumbent Republican Sen. Bob Bennett, whom he accused of breaking promises to his constituents and overstaying his welcome in Washington, D.C.

“It’s true that in Washington, seniority matters,” Shurtleff said. “But not if that seniority is taking us in the wrong direction. More of the wrong medicine never cured anybody.”
