At last week’s Box Elder County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner, a straw poll was taken for the U.S. Senate seat. Incumbent Bob Bennett placed first with 122 votes, or 38.4 percent. Bennett was followed by Mike Lee with 110 votes (31.5%), Tim Bridgewater with 50 votes (15.7%), Cherilyn Eager with 31 votes (12.2%), and James Williams with 6 votes (1.9%). Since that vote was taken, former 2nd District Congressman Merill Cook has announced that he, too will be challenging Sen. Bennett. A similar straw poll will be taken when the Cache County Republican Party holds its annual Lincoln Day Dinner on Friday, March 12.
