Monday morning the Hatch campaign was touting an endorsement by Steve Forbes, the former two-time GOP presidential candidate, CEO of Forbes, and a vice chairman of the FreedomWorks Foundation board.

Major conservative group urging Hatch to retire

Washington (CNN) – Sen. Orrin Hatch's re-election campaign says a leading grassroots conservative organization, that's calling on the longtime Republican senator from Utah to retire, is wasting their money.

"It's a curious decision by FreedomWorks considering Orrin Hatch agrees that a limited government is essential to rebuilding our country. If FreedomWorks is anxious to spend their money, why not put it into defeating Barack Obama in the Presidential race?" says Hatch campaign manager Dave Hansen in a statement to CNN.

Tea Party goes high tech

Washington (CNN) - With the 2010 election's conclusion, conservative grass roots organizations like FreedomWorks are looking toward their next big hurdles– making sure elected officials keep their promises to reduce the deficit and lower taxes and, of course, winning big in the next major election in 2012.

As part of their effort to continue the conservative momentum which led Republicans to an unprecedented 60 seat gain to clinch the majority in the House of Representatives, FreedomWorks, founded by former Republican Majority Leader Dick Armey, is rolling out a new website aimed at empowering Tea Party-backed groups by providing supporters with the tools to connect with other local groups, find events and engage in discussions.
