Dan Liljenquist is running for the Senate in Utah, challenging long-time incumbent Orrin Hatch. Glenn invited Liljenquist to the GBTV studios in Dallas to share his positions and to explain why he differs from Hatch who has served Utah for years.
Glenn started off by welcoming Liljenquist to the program and noted that while he has a lot of respect for Hatch, he doesn't think that the world is the same as it was when Hatch assumed office. Glenn explained that worked twenty years ago in Washington won't necessarily work today, and that fresh faces and new ideas are needed in Congress.
On the show, Liljenquist discussed his business background and work with Bain Capital and how he has experience in working with companies in trouble and helping to turn them around. Liljenquist claimed that he has been growing concerned with what is happening with Washington and doesn't see the leaders there who can take the needed action.
"I don't think that the generation of the politicians who got us here is going to take us out," Liljenquist told Glenn.
Liljenquist added that he was passionate about reforming entitlements, especially Medicare, because a financial collapse isn't hypothetical to him. If the system collapses because of America's financial state - it's going to happen in his lifetime.
"I want to change the game," Liljenquist said.
