Sen. Bob Bennett (R-UT), who was defeated for renomination at the state Republican convention a week and a half ago, is seemingly poised to announce tomorrow whether he will fight on in the general election with a write-in bid.
Speaking to USA Today, Bennett was rather cryptic. Here is their report:
Asked in an interview whether he would pursue the write-in route, Bennett offered his standard line: “Once I make that decision, you’ll be the second to know,” he said. But Bennett, 76, then added, “Stay tuned tomorrow.” Asked if that meant he would announce his decision tomorrow, Bennett repeated, “Stay tuned tomorrow.”
The Republican nominee in this deep-red state is yet to be determined, with a June 22 primary between attorney Mike Lee and businessman Tim Bridgewater, who both defeated Bennett for spots on the ballot under the Utah convention process.
