SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Tim Bridgewater, a Republican activist, businessman and former congressional candidate, says he is running for the U.S. Senate and plans to formally declare his candidacy Thursday.

Bridgewater joins several other candidates vying to unseat fellow Republican Sen. Bob Bennett in the 2010 election.

Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, Internet real estate marketer Cherilyn Eagar and South Jordan businessman James Williams also plan to challenge Bennett, who is seeking a fourth term in the Senate.

The only Democrat to file for the race so far is Sam Granato, a restaurant owner and chairman of the state's Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control.

Bridgewater plans to formally announce his candidacy Thursday at noon in Jordan.
