CNN Political Tracker ^ | 03/25/2012 | Marlena Baldacci

Republican Sen. Mike Lee of Utah will endorse GOP presidential candidate Mitt Romney on Monday, a Romney campaign source confirmed to CNN.

Lee, a popular figure in the Tea Party movement, will be the first member of the Senate Tea Party Caucus to endorse the former Massachusetts governor. Romney previously received the support of most of the Utah congressional delegation, including Sen. Orrin Hatch and Representatives Jason Chaffetz and Rob Bishop.

Mike Lee is a rino butthead now? Isn't he the guy the Tea Party backed in ousting the real rino, Bob Bennett?

My my my.

I don't care who endorses the RINO from Massabullshit! I'm not going to vote for him! I've just had enough of these RINO's - they're nothing but useful idiots facilitating the goals of the Godless Left!

Mike Lee is one of the GOOD GUYS. Hopefully, some of his ABUNDANT integrity & TRUE conservatism will rub off on Romney. One can hope anyhow.

If you're speaking of Mike Lee, you are wayyyyy off base! Everyone forgets, Romney was the bomb here on FR in '08 when he WAS the conservative in the race. Not that I'm a fan of Mittens, and I'm not, but he is better than anything the left/liberals/progressives/democrats have to offer. Regardless of who wins the Republican nomination, I'll support, whole heartedly, that candidate!

False hope. He will pack his administration with Mormons, and they’ll all be two-faced SOB’s like him.

I don’t think he has any choice. Either he endorses Bishop Romney, or he loses next time he runs. This is Utah.

I live in the People's Republic of Maryland. A vote in this state for Romney, if he becomes the nominee, is just as much a waste of a vote as a vote for Alfred E. Neuman would be. I'm not voting for the son of a bitch because I'd rather vote for someone in whom I believe even in a hopeless cause than to waste my vote on another maggot who is nothing more than a fellow traveler with the Socialist scum now in power.

Not me....I was for Fred Thompson but people wanted Huckabee just like santos this time. Fred accepted the fact he would not have the support/ after he was told the establishment was going with McCain- since John backed Bush so it was his reward. I cannot stand Romney last time nor this time. I am not voting for him. I will do a write in.

Doubt he got much of a donation for that endorsement. Not like he wasn’t going to win the Mormon Vatican.

Pray for America

Endorsing Romney is saying, “I wanna give nobama four more years to complete the destruction of my country.”

If Romney is the nominee, not voting for him is a vote for Barack H. Obama.

Such endorsement by heavy weight elected conservatives (like DeMint, Toomey, Lee) might not affect (some) Freepers, but it will influence some conservatives who are on the fence about Romney.

He's a freshmen senator from Utah, and incidentally the youngest incumbent. He wants to be reelected in 5 years.

No sense anyone outside Utah holding it against him.

I will vote for him if forced to.

Can’t say I will support hims, and if Romney are a Conservative, I are the Pope.

Romney endorsed Bob Bennett in the election, and Lee managed to win without him.
