From CQ Politics:

Bennett’s loss will also be a major victory for the anti-tax group, the Club for Growth, who had put the Senator at the top of it’s target list this primary season. Bennett became a top target of the Club in the wake of his efforts to help pass the Wall Street Bailout bill in 2008 and the group took a lead role in lobbying delegates to oust the three-term Senator leading to today’s convention. The Club spent heavily on it’s effort to lobby convention voters to dump Bennett.

From the Washington Post:

While state Republicans had expressed uneasiness with Bennett, it was the DC-based Club for Growth that helped crystallize that opposition. The Club spent more than $200,000 on a combination of television ads, direct mail pieces and phone calls designed to influence the 3,500 (or so) delegates who attended Saturday's state convention.

The Deseret News:

The Club for Growth, a conservative group that spent nearly $200,000 against Bennett, cheered his demise.
