Lee Evaluates the GOP Presidential Field

At a breakfast hosted by The Christian Science Monitor, Sen. Mike Lee sizes up the 2016 presidential prospects of Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, and Marco Rubio.

Reports The Monitor:

Who better to comment on the senators aiming for the GOP presidential nomination than their tea party compatriot, Sen. Mike Lee (R) of Utah?

At a breakfast hosted by the Monitor on Friday, Senator Lee, who rode the tea party wave to Congress in a stunning primary upset in 2010, shared his thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of Republican presidential candidates Sens. Ted Cruz of Texas and Rand Paul of Kentucky, as well as Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, who is expected to throw his hat in the ring on Monday evening.

The congenial Lee, who has been in the trenches filibustering with Senator Cruz over the Affordable Care Act and writing tax legislation with Senator Rubio, wasn’t ready to endorse any one of his three friends.
