Hatch challenged by nine for seat in Senate

US incumbent Senator Orrin Hatch has nine challengers in the upcoming election and five of them are from his own Republican party. One of those, Dale Ash, appeared on KVNU’s For the People Monday and said Hatch has been in office for too long. Ash is running because he said he sees a huge ideological war going on to the detriment of his grandchildren. “I believe that when you empower 300 million Americans through freedom to be freely engaged in the economy – through free enterprise – in the political process and in charitable giving – through the religion of their choice – that you get the right people and the right resources to the right place more effectively and efficiently than any other country on the planet,” Ash said. Others running against Hatch are Republicans Chris Herrod, Dan Liljenquist, Jeremy Friedbaum and Timothy Noel Aalders, Democrats Pete Ashdown and William “Bill” Peterson ll, Constution Party’s Shaun Lynn McCausland and unaffiliated Bill Barron.
