Gov. David Dewhurst. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File)

    FILE - In this June 7, 2012 photo, Texas Gov. Rick Perry speaks during the Texas Republican Convention in Fort Worth, Texas. Perry has spent much of the past three years publicly, loudly and defiantly fighting against what he views as Washington meddling in state affairs, often refusing to cooperate with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and becoming a leader in the battle against President Barack Obama’s health care plan. His hard-fought battle, however, has led to more of what he most staunchly opposes: federal oversight. (AP Photo/LM Otero, File)

    FILE - In this Feb. 11, 2012 file photo, Republican presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, speaks to his supporters following his loss in the Maine caucus to Mitt Romney, in Portland, Maine. With Mitt Romney's nomination all but decided, Ron Paul supporters wrested control of the Maine Republican Convention and elected a majority slate supporting the Texas congressman to the GOP national convention, party officials said as the two-day convention neared its end Sunday, May 6, 2012. The results gave the Texas congressman a late state victory. (AP Photo/Robert F. Bukaty, File)

Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, speaks at the committee's hearing with oil company executives on Capitol Hill in Washington, to address high gasoline prices and high profits amid a push by Democratic leaders to strip billions of dollars worth of industry tax breaks. Disgruntled conservatives planted the seeds of defeat for another Utah senator, Robert Bennett, long before delegates at the Utah Republican Convention made it official two years ago. Now some hope to replicate their success against six-term senator Hatch Thursday, March 15, 2012, in Utah?s Republican caucuses. (AP Photo/Alex Brandon, File)

    FILE - In this May 4, 2004, Utah Republican Sen.s Robert Bennett, left, and Orrin Hatch, center, talk on stage during the state Republican convention in Sandy, Utah. When the three-term Bennett lost re-election in 2010, it sent shock waves through the Republican Party and heralded a revolt that saw tea-party-backed candidates, like Christine O'Donnell, Sharron Angle and Marco Rubio, topple more established, mainstream Republicans. Disgruntled conservatives planted the seeds for Bennett's defeat, and now some of them hope to replicate their success against six-term Hatch Thursday, March 15, 2012, in Utah?s Republican caucuses.
