Hatch Warns Tea Party Activists on Republican Split


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.”

    perhaps Mr. Hatch your time in the senate should come to an end as well. the Conservative Movement is tired of the old fashioned politician, it’s time for the republican party to embrace the conservative values that orignally caused the formation of the party in the first place. whether you be democrat or republican it seems they are all progressives, and Mr. Hatch this is definitely what we don’t want

  2. Hatch needs to shove it , TRUE USA CITIZENS have had enough of back door deals GET RID OF ALL HALF HEARTED POLITICIANS ALONG WITH LIBERALS ULTRA LIBERALS NOW !!!!

    Orrin – When you blamed tea party activists for Gordon Smith’s defeat in Oregon, you didn’t have the slightest clue what you were talking about. The Tea Party movement didn’t even exist in 2008. It’s “Out of Touch Republicans” like you, presumably living in some elitist echo chamber who can still snatch defeat from victory for the GOP in 2010 if no one fills you in. Based upon this nonsense, you don’t seem to have a clue what’s really going on at street level in America today. Guess it shows you’ve been in Washington too long and should consider retirement, or you might just get fired for unacceptable performance.
