Dan Liljenquist's TV ad, which he can run only infrequently and without opportunity for debate, is correct in reviewing the record for which Sen. Orrin Hatch is accountable. It includes favoring perks and immunity for elected officials, sponsorship of far too many earmarks for special interests, collaborative participation in a Senate that has created programs of political purpose over national need and failure of "his" Senate Finance Committee in oversight and control of spending by federal agencies.
Indiana moved a step in the future by removing Hatch's long term colleague, who like Hatch is a fine person who served excessive terms with best intentions, but whose time has passed. Utah now has the opportunity to extend the process in the election of a new senator with a new perspective.
