A GREAT OMEN FOR NOVEMBER!!!
Sen. Bennett in Fight of His Life for Utah Republican NominationAssociated Press Three-term Utah Sen. Robert Bennett, a reliable vote for conservative principles, may no longer be conservative enough for the state’s GOP voters.

SALT LAKE CITY — U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett said Friday his seniority allows him to bring more change in Washington than any of his seven GOP opponents, using the final debate before Utah Republicans narrow the field to try to stave off criticism he’s no longer conservative enough to represent them. Bennett’s bid for a fourth term is at stake as about 3,500 Republican delegates gather Saturday to choose the party’s nominee — or two candidates to face off in a June primary. Bennett is in serious danger of being defeated at the convention, with recent delegate surveys showing him in third place behind attorney Mike Lee and businessman Tim Bridgewater. Bennett debated Lee, Bridgewater and conservative activist Cherilyn Eagar Friday on KNRS radio. Bennett said charges by his opponents that he is not a conservative are false, noting he’s been endorsed by the National Rifle Association and has high ratings from other conservative groups.

But he has come under attack for voting for a massive financial bailout, co-sponsoring a bipartisan bill mandating health insurance coverage and for aggressively seeking earmarks for Utah. (GAME-SET-MATCH)
