Skip to comments.Top of the ballot: Ron Paul picks his winner in Utah (so does the TEA Party Express)

Utah Senate candidate Mike Lee (R) unveils his own big endorsements, Illinois adds a big spender to the Senate race and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) won't be going to Colorado after all.
I'll see your senator and raise you a congressman
Lee was thought to be losing momentum in his bid for the Utah GOP Senate nomination after his rival, Tim Bridgewater, rolled out endorsements from Sen. Bob Bennett (R-Utah) and fourth-place convention finisher Cherilyn Eagar (R).
But Lee was able to fire back this week with endorsements from Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) and the Tea Party Express, which helped Republican Sharron Angle with the Nevada Senate primary.
Lee didn't know too much about Paul's endorsement before his political action committee released a statement, but he flaunted it all the same.
It's another indicator that Mike is the true fiscal conservative in the race. Is it a game-changer? Not by any means. But I'm sure it will help open up some fundraising ability," a Lee spokesman told the Salt Lake Tribune.
They better rake that money in quickly; the primary vote is next Tuesday

The TEA Party Express is strongly in Mike Lee’s favor, while Tim Bridgewater is the RINO establishment choice. Utah conservatives need to do what Nevada conservatives did, nominate a real bona fide conservative Constitutionalist.
Paul also endorsed the tuthers, the birthers, the area-51 disclosure group,
the Thetan liberation folks and the Aliens for Tinfoil Elimination.
He's awesome that way.
I am convinced that your mama dropped you on your head when you were a child.
I still prefer Lee over the establishment RINO Bridgewater.
Bridgewater is an idiot. Touting an endorsement from Bennett and the last-place loser? Yeah, that’ll give you momentum and propel you to victory.
LOL. The Ron Paul websites are much more openly hostile towards birthers than here.
