Tea Party activists “must support moderate Republicans or risk seeing liberals elected instead,” Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) warned this week, The Hill reports.
Speaking to constituents at a town hall, Hatch warned Tea Partiers not to split the Republican Party.
"If we fractionalize the Republican Party, we are going to see more liberals elected," Hatch said, according to the Salt Lake City Tribune.
Conservatives in the audience “reportedly booed Hatch’s comments.”
