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. 

For more information about this race and others that FreedomWorks PAC will be
targeting in 2010 as part of the Take America Back campaign, please visit the

Director Rob Jordan at (202) 942-7624.
