Bridgewater is one of seven Republicans challenging U.S. Sen. Bob Bennett for the GOP nomination. Federal Election Commission reports show Bridgewater has loaned himself $276,000 for his Senate bid, giving him the most cash of any of Bennett's challengers through December.
Advertisements in the run up to the May 8 GOP convention are rare. That's because candidates are only targeting about 3,500 delegates. If any candidate fails to get 60 percent of delegate votes after several rounds of voting, the top two candidates face off in a June primary.
