Fresh off a stinging primary defeat, Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah) hinted today that he is considering a bid as a write-in candidate in 2010.

In the days following his defeat, Bennett was tight-lipped about running without the support of the GOP, saying only he had "made the firm decision to not make any decisions."

Today, however, he went a little further:

Asked in an interview whether he would pursue the write-in route, Bennett offered his standard line: "Once I make that decision, you'll be the second to know," he said. But Bennett, 76, then added, "Stay tuned tomorrow." Asked if that meant he would announce his decision tomorrow, Bennett repeated, "Stay tuned tomorrow."
