Since Chris Stewart faces no Republican opposition, why would Mike Lee endorse him? Does Mike Lee think his endorsement will encourage more Democrats and Independents to vote for Chris Stewart?

News Flash for Senator Lee: Not gonna happen. Those who will vote for Chris Stewart will do so in spite of Mike Lee's endorsement; not because of his endorsement.

Does anyone really care? Mike Lee endorses Carl Wimmer and he gets beat. Mike Lee's endorsement doesn't carry a lot of weight that I can tell. Nationally, his Constitutional Conservative PAC has endorsed 4 candidates and 3 are going to lose and the one that is going to win was going to win without Mike Lee endorsing. If I were Chris Stewart I would make him take it back.

Who's Mike Lee going to endorse? The Democrat? This is so not news that it is almost laughable. And by the way, who cares? What next for Lee? Liljenquist? Now that wouldn't suprise me since Lee has no apparent respect for his elders.

What a perfect reason not to support or vote for Chris Stewart.

We sent Mike Lee back to be a statesman, he has been nothing of the kind . Chris Stewart can do better than that.

I see a lot of people who criticize Mike Lee but can never offer anything they disagree with. I see five comments demeaning him and not one offers a specific policy they or vote they disagree with. Senator Lee has earned my respect for voting against the NDAA, and voting against the renewal of the Patriot Act, as well as his opposition to government overreach in SOPA and similar bills. His calls for accelerated troop withdrawals from Afghanistan show he is willing to break with his party in search of a foreign policy that makes more sense. Do any of you have anything to offer that you disagree with, instead of casting vague aspersions about not being "statesman" enough or his endorsement not being all-powerful?
