One of several people wanting the job of U.S. Senator Bob Bennett, R-UT, is Tim Bridgewater and he was in Logan Thursday night speaking to the Young Republicans organization. Prior to his meeting with them, Bridgewater appeared on KVNU’s For the People program to discuss his candidacy and some of the problems he sees facing the country. Bridgewater says there has always been an anti-establishment group in Utah. Now, he says, that movement has been fueled by what he called, “the Obama administration’s lurch to the left.” “It’s seizing power and putting the hands of power into government control,” he continued. “You can go down banking, the automotive industry, now the health care industry and it’s all about the government doing more, providing more, gaining more power.” Bridgewater also said his concern over government expansion is not limited to conservative Republicans. “That’s frightening to those of who consider ourselves conservative, or Republicans and even the independents today. I don’t think, knowing what people know now, that Barack Obama would actually win an election today.” Bridgewater says he has not only been active in Utah Republican politics, but he also worked for the Reagan administration in the late 1980s.
