Read the full endorsement below.
Dear Senator Hatch:
It was a pleasure to travel with you across Utah in February to endorse your reelection to the United States Senate. You have been a tireless advocate on behalf of our Constitution and the limitations it places on the size and scope of our federal government. And you have done more than any other Senator to raise funds critical to electing Republicans to gain a majority in the Senate.
Having served together on the Senate Judiciary Committee, I can attest to the key role you have played in helping to put conservatives on the United States Supreme Court, including Justice Samuel Alito and Chief Justice John Roberts, and throughout the federal judiciary. You've been one of the strongest supporters of First Amendment rights protecting religious liberty, as well as the Second Amendment's individual right to bear arms.
We have also served together on the Senate Finance Committee, and if Republicans retake the Senate next year, you will be poised to claim the Chairmanship. This assignment could not come at a more critical time. The Finance Committee will have to act almost immediately to prevent job-destroying tax increases on income, capital gains and dividends, and to prevent the reemergence of high death taxes. It will have to move immediately to repeal ObamaCare and being to reform entitlements to keep them from bankrupting our country. These are challenges that will, from day one, require a Senator with the experience and know-how to get the job done. I hope Utahns understand how much we are relying on you to guide the Committee next year.
As the Senate Republican Whip, it's my job to round up the votes to advance our constitutional conservative agenda, so I know firsthand how important it is to reelect reliable conservatives like you with proven experience. Thank you for everything you have done to put us in position to overturn the disastrous agenda Barack Obama and Harry Reid have imposed on the nation over the last three-and-a-half years.
United States Senator
