The Utah GOP convention has forced Republican Senator Orrin Hatch into a primary race with conservative entrepreneur Dan Liljenquist. The reason is Mr. Hatch fell below the 60 percent mark, which means it eliminates the possibility of avoiding a GOP primary contest.
This is real news, not the inconsequential Ted Nugent and George Zimmerman debacles that the media cannot resist getting off on.
Evidently, chitchatting with his Republican friends and cronies, as Michelle Malkin asserts, was a bust.
Embarrassing, but quite sensational, considering Hatch’s die-hard RINO status.
Despite the MSM’s ambitious claims, the Tea Party is far from extinct.
