What a difference 36 years makes. The last time Sen. Orrin Hatch had a primary, he called for a series of eight debates to be held across the state. Today, he grudgingly accepted to participate in a single debate held on the radio a week before the primary.
The 1976 version of Hatch wanted total citizen participation with multiple media outlets covering these live debates from Monticello, to Logan, to Vernal. In 2012, Hatch says he's too busy to meet with voters. I wish we still had the 1976 version of Hatch.
