Senator Orrin Hatch and Governor Jon Huntsman

Huntsman endorses Hatch's re-election The News noticed that the end of Senator Hatch's next term (if he is re- elected and doesn't die) is 2012 The same year Governor Jon Huntsman Jr. has promised to step down as Governor of Utah. Governor Huntsman is believed to harbor a secret Senator fantasy. It would be messy if the only route to its fulfillment were through a young incumbent Senator. It's much cleaner to have the ancient Senator retire and anoint GJHJr. his successor. Mike The Hair Leavitt is clenching his fists and biting his lip right now.
