Sen. Mike Lee appeared on NBC's "Meet the Press" Sunday where he said President Obama's nominee to replace Attorney General Eric Holder will get a vote in the Senate sometime in "the next few weeks."
Obama nominated Loretta Lynch about four months ago. Lee told host Chuck Todd part of the reason for the delay was a protest against Obama's use of executive action on immigration.
"I'm not going to say it's ridiculous," Lee said about the six-month long delay period. "I do think it's ridiculous that the president rewrote the immigration code and that he still hasn't provided a full legal explanation of what empowers him to do this."
Lee also touched on his own political conundrum: who to endorse for president in 2016. Three of his close friends in the Senate — GOP senators Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio — have all formally announced that they are running.
"And I intend to be a supporter of all three of them as much as I possibly can," he said.
