Bob Bennett Must Go: Urging Supporters to Lie
This is interesting. The Club For Growth sent out a press release that gives some on the ground scoop out of Utah not too flattering to Bob Bennett.
As you know, Utah is having its caucuses next week. People will be picked as delegates to go to the State Convention. At the convention, if Bennett cannot get 60% of the delegates to support him, he will either be defeated at the convention or be forced into a runoff.
According to the Club for Growth, Bennett’s campaign is allegedly encouraging its supporters to show up at the caucuses and lie as best they can to become delegates to the convention.
Right now there is a heavy anti-Bennett bias even within the official Utah Republican Party. Having Bennett’s supporters come in and claim to be wholly undecided or hostile to Bennett could help send his brigade to the convention to protect him.
Desperate men do desperate things.
