In an interview with The Daily Caller, Sen. Mike Lee discusses Iran, his literary influences, and the threat of a possible Josh Romney 2016 primary challenge.
Notes Jamie Weinstein:
“I really liked Jonah Goldberg’s ‘Liberal Fascism,” Lee, whose new book “Our Lost Constitution” came out earlier this month, told TheDC when asked what three books most helped shape his worldview outside of religious texts. “I thought it was an outstanding book. I wish every American would read it. I absolutely loved it.”
“I’m a big fan of a lot of books written by Mark Levin, including ‘Liberty and Tyranny.’ That was one that I read shortly before running for this office,” Lee continued. “I also really liked the biography by Amity Shlaes about Calvin Coolidge, which is simply entitled ‘Coolidge.’ Great book. Great book, and it’s also a nice sort of prequel to another book of hers that I really liked called ‘The Forgotten Man.”
Asked what sources he reads to get his news, Lee said: “I consult the Drudge Report a lot. I find the Drudge Report to be a very efficient aggregator of news information.”
