Daniel…….Utah Senate: BREAKING NEWS: Incumbent Senator Robert "Bob" Bennett (R-UT) WON'T run as a Write-In Candidate to retain his Senate Seat

Hello Folks!

We’ve BREAKING NEWS out of Utah. Incumbent Senator Robert “Bob” Bennett (R-UT) who lost at the Republican State Convention on May 8th announced today at the NRSC Headquarters that he WOULD NOT RUN as a Write-In Candidate to retain his Seat POLITICO reports.

NO WRITE-IN: Utah Sen. Robert Bennett announced Thursday he will not pursue a write-in campaign for reelection, ruling out the final option that might have allowed him to retain his seat after being denied his party’s nomination at the state GOP convention earlier this month.

“If I were to do it, it would revive all of those passions and divide the party in the state of Utah,” Bennett said, calling the campaign “the nastiest race for a party nomination in the history of Utah.”

Bennett’s move clears the way for businessman Tim Bridgewater and attorney Mike Lee, who came in first and second at the convention, to compete for the GOP nomination in a June 22 primary. Bridgewater, who captured the most delegates at the convention, is in Washington Thursday and a GOP source tells POLITICO he has a meeting scheduled with Bennett. — David Catanese

His move clears the way for a competitive Primary between Businessman Tim Bridgewater (R-UT) and Attorney Mike Lee (R-UT) on June 22nd.

Bridgewater is in Washington today to meet with the NRSC. He has also a scheduled Meeting with Bennett.
