Statement from Becky Edwards on Mike Lee’s efforts to help overturn the 2020 election

“Sen. Mike Lee researched overturning a lawful, democratic election for partisan and political gain. The moment Mike Lee realized the gravity of Trump’s attempts to undermine the 2020 election, he should have stopped researching the legality of such actions and stopped pressuring local legislators. Lee has an obligation to protect and defend our Constitution and democratic process, as he swore to do when he took office. Instead, he allowed the situation to continue and enabled those seeking to keep themselves in power, no matter the consequences.”
