Over the past two years, GOP primaries have ended the careers of several veteran Republican politicians who were backed by the party's establishment. Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch is seeking to avoid the same fate in his first primary challenge since winning office in 1976.
Two veteran congressmen, New York's Rep. Charles Rangel and Utah's Sen. Orrin Hatch, headed to victory Tuesday after early returns showed them staving off primary challenges from younger rivals.
Orrin G. Hatch appeared to be coasting to victory in Utah's Republican Senate primary, and then Richard G. Lugar happened.
Sen. Orrin G. Hatch of Utah will face a contested Republican primary for the first time in 36 years, but that's not necessarily bad news for the six-term senator.
As Utah Republicans prepare to nominate a Senate candidate this weekend, it appears that Sen. Orrin Hatch may have bucked the anti-incumbent trend.
For all the talk of Sen. Orrin G. Hatch's political vulnerability, the veteran Utah Republican had managed to deflect all serious challengers until Wednesday, when state Sen. Dan Liljenquist entered the primary race.
"Washington, D.C., is broken and some of our own Republican lawmakers share in the blame," Mr. Liljenquist said Wednesday in a statement. "It's time for new conservative ideas from those who have the energy to see them through."
