No one can sell Hatch like Mac -- no one

Summarized by Kent Larsen

No one can sell Hatch like Mac -- no one
Deseret News 7Sep99 L1
By Bob Bernick Jr.: Deseret News political editor

LDS Clothier Mac Christensen, back from a stint as Director of the LDS Visitors Center in Washington, D.C., is back pitching again. In addition to working with his own stores, Christensen is featured in an ad for Senator Orrin Hatch, helping Hatch raise funds for his campaign for President of the United States.

Hatch is trying desperately to raise enough cash to compete effectively against Texas Governor George W. Bush, who has raised $36 million to date. Hatch's plan is to match Bush's campaign by getting donations of $36 each from one million people."George Bush has the fat cats. I want the skinny cats," Hatch said.

In addition to Christensen, the ad features, among others, former Utah Governor Norm Bangerter and BYU coach LaVell Edwards, both of whom are members of the LDS Church. The ad asks for each Utahn to contribute $36. Hatch would need about half of all Utahns to reach his $36 million goal. He currently has raised just $1 million.
