Republican U.S. Senate candidate Bob Bennett said the reason for his candidacy is a desire to return America to the values of the Founding Fathers.
"When the time came to break off from England, Thomas Jefferson sat down and told the king what the shared values were of this new nation called America," Bennett said. "He said, `You believe God gave you the right to rule over us. Well, king, we hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal.' "
