SALT LAKE CITY--(Business Wire)-- FreedomWorks PAC joined grassroots activists this weekend at the Salt Palace Convention Center to support Mike Lee`s candidacy for Senator. Mike Lee and Tim Bridgewater will now face a June 22nd primary after defeating 18 year incumbent Bob Bennett. For the first time since 1940, an incumbent Senator has lost the Utah Primary, and FreedomWorks is proud to have helped create an environment that encourages conservative victory. In the weeks leading up to the convention, countless volunteer activists took to the streets for the FreedomWorks PAC`s Get Out The Vote (GOTV) project, which included door-to-door literature drops, yard sign distribution and direct phone calls to over 60% of Utah Republican delegates. FreedomWorks PAC President Matt Kibbe remarked, "FreedomWorks PAC holds the philosophy that government goes to those who show up. Utah conservatives are working hard to establish a presence in their communities and to make their voices heard. This is already a victory for conservatives, and we hope that Mike Lee comes out on top." Mike Lee is a passionate defender of small government conservative values, and is a signer of the grassroots-generated Contract FROM America. Lee has publicly called for fundamental tax reform through a flat tax, less government regulation, and an end to the runaway deficit spending that continues to plague our country.
