Orrin Hatch, rivals wooing 4,000 delegates — one at a time
Politics » Sen. Orrin Hatch and one of his challengers, Dan Liljenquist, skirmish in “hand-to-hand combat.”

"Also, the Republican Party charges a lot for its events," such as county conventions, "while it gives incumbents automatic access," Aalders said, claiming that hurts newcomers without a lot of money. He said the party is also pushing to include only the top three candidates in debates. "They say that is based on polls, but my name wasn’t included in the poll."

Aalders added, "But I still keep fighting. ... About 60 to 70 percent of the people who listen to me say they support me. So that gives me a reason to keep going, and it gives me a chance."
