Tea Party ousts veteran Republican Bob Bennett in Utah

Tea Party ousts veteran Republican Bob Bennett in Utah 09 May 2010 The conservative grassroots Freedumb Works-backed Tea Party movement claimed its first major scalp in the US political establishment yesterday as the veteran Republican senator Bob Bennett was deselected by delegates in his home state of Utah for being too moderate. Bennett, 76, has been in office since 1992 and is an ally of the Republican senate leader, Mitch McConnell. His defeat at the hands of two political newcomers was partly due to anger over his support for the White House's $700bn bailout of the banking system at the height of the global financial crisis.
