How do you feel about Sen. Bennett, R-Utah now? 

From the Salt Lake Trib:

Jim Bennett, the son of Sen. Bob Bennett who ran his father’s campaign for a fourth term this year, has begun working as a volunteer on the Senate campaign of Democrat Sam Granato, who hopes to replace the senior Bennett in Washington, D.C….Jim Bennett says his defection to a Democratic candidate for the Senate should not be construed as sour grapes. He says it is an honest assessment in his mind of who the best candidate is among the remaining contenders.

“If you take the ‘D’ and the ‘R’ out of the equation, Sam Granato is more consistent with the values of mainstream Utah than Mike Lee,” he said. He made the move quietly, he said, because he did not want to embarrass his father, who has endorsed Lee and remains a loyal Republican.
