LILJENQUIST CONGRATULATES DEB FISCHER ON UPSET VICTORYMay 16, 2012
Another Conservative Republican Trumps Establishment Candidate
(Salt Lake City, UT) – Conservative Dan Liljenquist today congratulated Nebraska State Senator Deb Fischer for her upset victory in the Nebraska Republican primary election.
“I congratulate Deb Fischer on her come from behind victory, further proving what we are hearing everywhere we go in Utah,” said Dan Liljenquist. “Voters are tired of the go-along-to-get-along mentality of career politicians. They want new leaders who will step up and bring real conservative change to Washington.”
Conservative Republican Dan Liljenquist has forced 6 term incumbent Senator Orrin Hatch into his first primary since 1976.
“Senator Hatch’s fiscally irresponsible voting record has become part of the problem,” said Liljenquist spokeswoman Holly Richardson. “Hatch’s votes in favor of earmarks such as the Bridge to Nowhere, the TARP bank bailout, decades of debt ceiling raises and gambling taxpayer money by picking winners and losers in the marketplace are driving our country’s finances off a cliff.”
“Orrin Hatch went to Washington nearly four decades ago and it is time that we hold him accountable for the things that have happened under his watch,” said Richardson. “That’s why we are challenging Orrin to be part of the solution and agree to contribute his expected six figure pension upon retirement to help pay down the national debt he helped create during his 36 years in Washington.”
