Description
Utah Senator Orrin Hatch joined the Republican race for president just two months ago, but Hatch says he's campaigning for real and with 23 years in the U.S. Senate, he claims he is far more qualified than many of his rivals, especially front runner, Texas Governor, George Bush. He's chair of the prestigious Senate Judiciary Committee, which has put him in the national spotlight several times. In general, Hatch votes conservatively on social issues and on most fiscal matters; when it comes to health care and children though Hatch sometimes moves to the center, working with his liberal colleague from Massachusetts, Ted Kennedy. As a presidential candidate, Hatch shares many of the same ideas as other Republicans, he supports school vouchers, a stronger military, lower taxes, he's anti-abortion, and pro-gun. Hatch also says he wants to bring together Americans of all classes and races, there's too much divisiveness in the country he says.
