Hatch Will Face Primary

Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) "came up just short of the support needed to claim his party's nomination for the seventh time, forcing him into a primary election with state Sen. Dan Liljenquist in June," the Salt Lake Tribune reports.

"After two rounds of balloting, Hatch had the support of 59.1 percent, a handful of votes short of the 60 percent threshold to claim the nomination outright. He'll face his first primary election since his 1976 victory."
