Mike Lee, Voters and the Republican Party
Tuesday, we're looking at Utah junior Senator Mike Lee's role in the current stalemate in Washington. Lee has joined with Texas Senator Ted Cruz and others to lead a charge against the Affordable Care Act and many believe their tactics have contributed to the government shutdown. Recent poll numbers show 51% of Utahns have an unfavorable view of the Senator and even some Republican colleagues are distancing themselves. Doug is joined by a panel of experts to talk about Senator Lee's relationship with voters and the party.
