Liljenquist visits Morgan countyMarch 19, 2012
Dan Liljenquist visited Morgan this week. Liljenquist is running for the U.S. Senate seat opposing Orrin Hatch for the Republican nomination. Liljenquist is hoping for a repeat of what happened to Bob Bennett when he was replaced at the Republican convention with Mike Lee in 2010.
Liljenquist is a graduate of BYU with a law degree from the University of Chicago. He worked at Bain capital and other firms and then retuned to Utah to lead Focus Services, an inbound call center. He and his wife have six children.
Liljenquist was elected to the Utah Senate in 2008. During his tenure in the senate Liljenquist was one of the leaders who helped tackle problems with the state pension fund and Medicare. “My time in the legislature, we have done some pretty remarkable things. We are the first state in the country to look down the road on two big issues and solve them,” said Liljenquist.
