At the GOP national convention, U.S. Senator Mike Lee was interviewed on CNN regarding a roll call vote being denied, which would have been a step closer in changing the rules. Below was a part of his exchange.
“At any political convention, in every Republican convention, one of the first things we do is adopt the rules package. There were a number of changes to the rules that were not in this package. There were a number of things in this set of rules that a lot of delegates didn’t like.”
Lee is open to dialogue and letting the delegates have a voice, but it did not sit well with Trump supporters. Some of them went on to claim Lee is a RINO (Republican in name only) even though he happens to have a perfect conservative rating from groups such as Heritage Action. Others called him a Democrat as well. Hilarious.
Mike Lee of Utah…RINO!
We the People Decide! #RNCinCLE

Mike Lee MUST be voted out of his senate office. I don't care who is running against him. He should be at the Democrat convention.
