Who says bipartisanship is dead? Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, has garnered the renowned Capitol hideaway office that once was the province of his good buddy Sen. Edward Kennedy, D-Mass., The Hill reports. That office has long been viewed as one of the top perks in Congress.

The two Democratic senators with more seniority than Hatch, Daniel Inouye of Hawaii and Patrick Leahy of Vermont, passed on Kennedy’s hideaway. No Republican outranks Hatch in seniority.

“It’s a nice prize and the envy of colleagues, but Hatch would prefer not to talk about senatorial perks as he faces a potential tea party-backed challenge in the 2012 Utah Republican primary,” The Hill reports.

GOP Rep. Jason Chaffetz has indicated he will make a bid for Hatch’s seat.
