Orrin Hatch’s Democratic Utah Senate Opponent Scott Howell Says Hatch is Too Old, Could Die in Office
What ever happened to that civility that Barack Obama called for? Obviously his Democrat party never got the memo or just cared to never listen.
The 2012 Utah US Senate race just got a bit ugly. Utah Democrat US Senate candidate Scott Howell obviously has little to off the fine folks of 45th state admitted to the Union. This ‘Ageist” actually said the following regarding his opponent, incumbent Republican US Senator Orin Hatch, he’s not a bad guy, but he could die in office. Huh? Really, this is what Howell is campaigning on, the other dude is too old? Howell actually put forth that Hatch was too old and die before his term was over. UNREAL. How offensive could one possibly be? Look for this clown to get destroyed in the Utah Senate race.
“Orrin Hatch is old enough to be my father and I don’t want my father running the United States Senate Finance Committee.”
But the most explosive part of Howell’s fundraising letter may be when he says that Hatch could,
“die before his term is through.”
Who thinks Howell just lost the AARP vote? Hatch says that he will not make age an issue in this race, he will not hold Howell’s youth and inexperience against him, ala Ronald Reagan.
