FreedomWorks for America Congratulates Mike Lee for Taking First Step Toward Re-Election
Following the close of the candidate filing in the race for Utah’s U.S. Senate seat, with no credible primary challenger filing to run against Sen. Mike Lee (R-Utah), FreedomWorks for America Chairman Adam Brandon commented:
“This is a huge victory for the conservative movement. In just his first term in office, Senator Lee authored bold legislation to restore freedom, rolled out impressive reforms to reassert the legislative branch’s proper role in the federal government, and stood his ground to protect the Constitution. We are certain that Lee will coast to victory in November, and we are excited for another six years of his conservative leadership in the Senate. We will be there to support him every step of the way.”
FreedomWorks for America showed support for Lee through various independent expenditures – including ad buys, yard signs, and other materials – exceeding $92,000. In November, for example, FreedomWorks for America launched a $48,000 television ad praising Lee’s strong conservative record, his commitment to Utah, and pursuit of bold reforms to protect taxpayers. Shortly after the ad aired, his approval rating among Utahns soared to 61 percent.
FreedomWorks for America is a grassroots service center that provides the tools needed to grassroots volunteers seeking to elect candidates who fight for lower taxes, less government, and more freedom.
