InfoIn 1998, Utahns elected Robert Bennett to a second six-year term in the United States Senate. In that election, Bennett proved widely popular with Utah voters, winning by a 64 percent margin and earning a majority of votes in every income, age and gender category.

Prior to his election to the Senate in 1992, Bennett earned distinction in entrepreneurial and government activities. For his success as chief executive officer of the Franklin International Institute -- the time management firm now known as Franklin Covey, Co. -- Bennett was named Inc. Magazine's "Entrepreneur of the Year" for the Rocky Mountain region. In recognition of his contribution to public education in Utah, Bennett received a 1989 Light of Learning Award from the state board of education. His Washington, D.C. experience includes service as chief congressional liaison at the U.S. Department of Transportation and the ownership of his own governmental relations firm.

Bennett was born September 18, 1933 in Salt Lake City and is the son of former four-term U.S. Senator Wallace F. Bennett and Frances Grant Bennett. He is a 1957 graduate and former student-body president of the University of Utah. Senator Bennett and his wife, Joyce, are the parents of six children.
