The Hinckley Institute Radio Hour

U.S. Senator Mike Lee


MikeLeeThe Hinckley Institute Radio Hour (Air date: Jan. 15, 2014) – Senator Mike Lee has served as Utah’s 16th senator since 2010.  During his 2009 election, Senator Lee harnessed strong support from conservative Tea Party voters who helped him to successfully unseated 18-year incumbent Republican senator Bob Bennett.  Since his election Sen. Lee has emerged as a polarizing figure – celebrated by conservative activists, but criticized by Democrats and even fellow Republicans.  Lee studied political science and earned a law degree at Brigham Young University.  He later served as law clerk to Judge Dee Benson of the U.S. District Court for the District of Utah, and worked for now Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, Jr., then with the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Third Circuit.  Lee has also worked as a constitutional lawyer in Utah and Washington D.C.

Sen. Lee speaks about his experience so far serving in Washington as Utah’s junior senator, and what he calls his “conservative reform agenda.”  The title of Sen. Lee’s talk is “Boston to Philadelphia: A journey from Protesting the Government We Don’t Want to the Government We Do.”  This Hinckley Institute Radio Hour was recorded at the University of Utah, in the Hinckley Caucus Room with an audience of students and community members, on January 10th, 2014.
