Conservative nonprofit American Action Network has launched a TV ad in support of Sen. Orrin Hatch’s (R-Utah) work in Congress to “stop reckless spending and balance the budget.”
The new ad, which will run for four weeks on Fox News, comes as other conservative outside groups are actively seeking to replace Hatch. He is up for a seventh term next year and is likely to face state Sen. Dan Liljenquist at the April 21 Republican state convention.
“Sen. Hatch has fought against the president’s bloated stimulus,” the ad’s announcer says. “He’s led the fight for a balanced budget amendment, and he’s stopped the latest stimulus dead in its tracks. Tell Sen. Hatch to keep leading the fight to balance the budget.”
Former Sen. Scott Brown, R-Mass., candidate for U.S. Senate in New Hampshire, holds his hand over his heart during the singing of the national anthem as he waits to take the stage for his town hall campaign rally with Sen. John McCain at the Pinkerton Academy in Derry, N.H., on Monday, Aug. 18, 2014.
