SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- The conservative anti-tax group Club for Growth has launched a letter-writing campaign to past GOP delegates in Utah urging them to oppose a health care bill sponsored by Republican Utah Sen. Bob Bennett.
The Washington, D.C.-based group also said Tuesday it is launching a television ad that targets Bennett. It wasn't immediately clear how much of the club's $1.2 million national advertising buy would be spent in Utah.
A Bennett spokesman didn't immediately have a comment Tuesday.
Bennett is seeking a fourth term in office in 2010 and faces several challengers from within his own party, including Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff.
In Utah, only candidates who earn more than 60 percent of delegate votes avoid a primary.
