Mike Lee is Utah’s junior senator.
He is routinely vilified nationally for his conservatism.
Sen. Mike Lee voted against every single executive and judicial nominee last year in a lonely protest against what the Utah Republican said were illegal appointments by President Barack Obama to the National Labor Relations Board.
And yesterday, the Supreme Court agreed with his position, unanimously determining that all twelve of Obama’s 2012 recess appointments were unconstitutional.
Hmmm. A former constitutional scholar bested by a former attorney with a lot of private sector experience.
Lee just went up by a point in my book.
