Robert Bennett, a former Inc. 500 CEO who now serves as a senator from Utah, was easily re-elected to another term yesterday. But in New Hampshire, first-term Gov. Craig Benson, the founder of the now defunct Inc. 500 company Cabletron, was bounced out of office. The Associated Press quoted Benson as saying, "I believe in fate. What's meant to be is meant to be. I'm an entrepreneur. I see opportunities in everything."
