Hatch In Good Position for June Primary

Salt Lake Tribune Washington Correspondent Thomas Burr

(KCPW News) While Utah Senator Orrin Hatch more than survived last weekend’s Republican state convention, it still ended with Hatch having to face his first primary election since originally winning his first Senate race in 1976. So what lies ahead between now and June, when he’ll go up against former State Senator Dan Liljenquist on the GOP ballot? Every Friday, we talk with Thomas Burr, Washington Correspondent for the Salt Lake Tribune and author of Political Cornflakes, a daily, online round-up of Utah politics. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked him if Hatch appears to be in a good position to win the primary.
