Utah’s Senate Race

Dan Liljenquist
Sen. Orrin Hatch

PoliticIt crunched some numbers on Utah’s race for U.S. Senate featuring Utah’s Senior Senator Orrin Hatch and Candidate Dan Liljenquist along with Democratic Senate Candidate Scott Howell. Based on the numbers, Orrin Hatch seems to be leading the race with the highest It Score as well as the highest metrics in nearly every social media category mentioned in this blog. Dan Liljenquist, however, has generated a lot of dialogue around his Twitter handle within the last month seeing more mentions than Sen. Orrn Hatch’s Twitter handle.
