Cherilyn Eagar officially entered an already crowded field of Republicans running for incumbant Bob Bennett's U.S. Senate seat Thursday.

Eagar, a Holladay businesswoman, said in a statement that she was running "to replace Senator Bob Bennett because Utah is no longer represented by a conservative voice.  With his incumbency, he has changed and is out of touch with the people he represents and is more beholden to the campaign contributions he uses to get re-elected."

Eagar is the latest candidate to enter the race, joining a field of challengers to Sen. Bob Bennett, including Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff, James Russell Williams and former congressional candidate Tim Bridgewater.

Cherilyn resides in Holladay, Utah with her husband Randy Eagar.  Between them they have seven children and nine grandchildren with the 10th on the way.
