Why Bennett Hedges On Fourth Seat

Senator Bob Bennett (R-Utah) hedged his support for the bill (S. 1257) to add a fourth congressional seat to Utah even as it needed just three more votes yesterday.

Does anyone wonder why he would back away from Utah’s best interests at a critical time? Maybe it’s because he knows the proposed second district would be an uncomfortable place for its current occupant and he might start looking across the Capitol lawn. I’m pretty sure Bennett, who is up in 2010, isn’t ready yet to start practicing the phrase “Senator Jim Matheson.”
