Bombshell: Sen. Orrin Hatch fails to lock up GOP nomination

Today Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch failed to secure the 60% delegate vote needed to lock up the GOP nomination for the U.S. Senate. He will face off against State Sen. Dan Liljenquist in a GOP primary. This is a huge victory for Utah Tea Party activists.


Deseret News:

With 59.19 percent of the vote, Hatch fell just shy of winning the Republican nomination outright at the state GOP convention. Delegates gave Liljenquist 40.81 percent of the vote in the second round of balloting. Candidates need 60 percent of the delegate vote win the nomination without a primary runoff.

Hatch calls his loss a tremendous victory:!/mattklewis/status/193788013938098176!/billyhesterman/status/193795485310517248
