Hatch Raises $1.3M Despite Being Coy On Re-Election Bid

Utah's senior senator, Republican Orrin Hatch, has raised over $1 million in campaign funds as he weighs a run for re-election.

In recent weeks, it has been suggested former Massachusetts governor and Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney may run for the seat if Hatch decided to retire, but the senator has been coy about his future.

Hatch hinted at a run, but hasn't made a final decision.
