Tuesday, we begin a series of candidate profiles at the Hinckley Institute of Politics. First up is former Democratic state legislator Scott Howell, who is challenging Orrin Hatch for his US Senate seat. This is Howell's second attempt at defeating the six-term Republican and polling predicts a repeat of that 2000 race, when Hatch won 66-31. But Howell told the Deseret News he's no sacrificial lamb. He says he's always wanted a rematch and that it's time for fresh representation in Washington.
RadioWest will speak with Senator Orrin Hatch on Monday, October 15
