Lee, once again and continually, proves that he's part of the problem and not part of the solution. It's clear that he's a disaster that is always looking for a place to happen. Unfortunately, in the Senate, he found it. That's sad, both for Utah's citizens and for the United States as a whole. We all deserve better.

No surprise there. Senator Lee has only a one-word vocabulary.

Despite the fact that I am related to Mike Lee, in my mind, he is an awful Senator. There is nothing he does that is constructive in Washington. Utah would be well served to make sure he serves only one term.

Mike Lee is just a surrogate of corporate America and the wealthy. The candidate is an excellent choice with a diverse background. Senator Lee should know that James Watt's is no longer a viable choice.

She would do no good or favors for Utah - even worse than Salazar. Lee voted his conscience, just like we're all able to.

Lee is looking out for the little guy. If the sage grouse is listed (endangered) it will devastate farming and ranching in Utah. School funding in rural Utah will go down. But, what do you city-folk care? Food comes from a grocery store, doesn't it.

Los Angeles, CA

KDave, not all food comes from the grocery store. Eagles and ravens get their food from the USFWS in the form of imported sage grouse. Surely, of 42 recentlty imported, there are probably 42 less sage grouse in the area.

you confuse liberals when you say Lee votes his conscience. They don't know what conscience is.
