Sen. Bob Bennett will endorse Utah GOP convention winner
Robert Gehrke and Thomas Burr is reporting that Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah) will endorse businessman Tim Bridgewater, who defeated the three-term senator for the GOP nomination at April's party convention. This comes after fourth-place candidate Cherilyn Eagar backed Bridgewater, and as FreedomWorks blogger Tabitha Hale speculates that Bridgewater's hunt for establishment support will backfire.
This could suck for Bridgewater, and I’d be lying if I told you I felt bad about it. Bennett was booed at the Utah convention last month for a reason - he doesn’t deserve to be there. He’s the definition of what conservatives are trying to eliminate, and the fact that he’s jumping on the Bridgewater bandwagon is telling.
FreedomWorks endorsed Mike Lee, a lawyer whose road to victory in this month's primary keeps getting narrower.
