Many of us are aware that when Sen. Orrin Hatch originally ran for Senate back in 1976 he was critical of incumbent Sen. Frank Moss's 18-year tenure in the Senate. Hatch made a scathing joke, saying: "What do you call a senator who's served in office for 18 years? You call him home."
Now, Hatch has served for more than double that amount of time and has lost touch with Utahns. He promised in 2002 and again in 2012 he would not run again. Are you surprised he did not keep that first promise, and he is now saying he will not be keeping the second promise either? In fact, during his first campaign he told voters he would serve two terms and leave.
