Robert Costa, a Washington Post political reporter and NBC News political analyst, tweeted Thursday: "When I asked a prominent Trump ally about Sen. Lee/ SCOTUS, they said this article is floating around the WH, as evidence that he's a long shot."
Costa included a link to an Associated Press story about Lee casting a "protest" vote in the 2016 presidential election for independent candidate Evan McMullin.

If Mike Lee never changes, does that mean he is a NeverTrumper and an Egg McMuffin voting moron forever? Just asking.
No Senators....for anything.
Well, that’s one way to get him out of the Senate................
Lee’s chances? I would think near zero, at least for this vacancy. Unlike most of the other possible choices Lee is fully on record with regards his views on Roe and Casey. As such he would almost certainly galvanize the Dimocrats into a solid No vote along with the two GOP moderates. So no, Trump is not going to pick him for this vacancy.
McMuffin / Lee 2020!
Mormons do what they are told to do.
In 2016, they were told to vote for Hillary.
Not all of them followed orders.
Lee’s Mormon family councilor growing up in DC was Harry Reid. I could go into more crap, but that should tell everyone enough.
At least Ted Cruz was running for president and had a natural, built-in reason to oppose Trump in the primaries. Lee doesn’t have even that fig leaf. Have we ever had a Mormon supreme court justice?
I will wait until Monday.
There will be enough court stories once Trump announces his pick.
After finding out he voted for Egg McMuffin, I don’t even want him in the Senate anymore, but there are too many Morons in Utah to elect a decent Senator.
They are about to elect Romney, for Pete’s sake....
I’ll Never fully trust any former NeverTrumper.. Even if they come around and support President Trump now, they had VERY bad judgement when they were against Trump.
I did not know that but he wont get that pick at SCOTUS. Trump is just playing the fool...
I think Lee has a brother who was mentioned at some time in the past.
There are multiple reasons Harry Reid was never indicted in Utah. One is Mike Lee. Another is his brother Thomas lee on the Utah Supreme Court.
It’s not just Lee’s views on Roe V Wade; the backstabbing, stupid, damned RINO, POS, #NEVER TRUMPER has ZERO chance to be
a Justice as long as Trump is president and it was Lyin’ Ted who started and is keeping this garbage ( about Lee being considered, which is a LIE! ) afloat.
Wow.. That is bizarre. You can’t make this stuff up!
I’ll NeverForgive Lyin’Ted!
