Hatch on Bennett, Chaffetz, 2012, and Reagan

The Utah senator speaks with NRO:

Would Ronald Reagan have wanted Bennett ousted? “Heavens no,” Hatch says. “He would have wanted Bennett in the Senate.”

“Reagan treated me like a son or a brother,” Hatch recalls. “I was the only member of Congress sitting with him in New Hampshire when he had to win. I sat with him and Nancy that whole night [in 1980]. He always said that Republicans shouldn’t attack fellow Republicans. Now, I think he’d look at what happened in Utah and realize it was an extraordinary situation, understanding the anger. At the same time, though, he’d understand the importance of having conservatives with experience, like me, to be in there, fighting.”
