Help us fight censorship!

From MSN: Hatch helped shape the Supreme Court, embraced President Donald Trump, and pushed Mitt Romney, a former Republican presidential candidate, to replace him when he finally called it quits after 42 years in office.

Hatch died Saturday in Salt Lake City surrounded by family members. He was 88. He leaves behind his wife, Elaine, his six children and dozens of grandchildren and great-grandchildren.


The White House released a statement in honor of Senator Hatch…

“Jill and I and the entire Biden family are saddened to learn of the passing of Orrin Hatch, the longest-serving Senator in Utah’s history, and the longest-serving Republican Senator in our nation’s history,” the statement read.

“Orrin Hatch once shared in an interview that he had a soft side, and he had a tough side. To serve with Orrin, as I did for over three decades, was to see—and appreciate—both,” read the full statement here.
