NRSC to host fundraiser for Lee

The National Republican Senatorial Campaign Committee will host a fundraising breakfast July 13 for Utah Senate candidate Mike Lee, according to the Salt Lake Tribune. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) will host the event.

Last month, Lee bested Tim Bridgewater in the Republican primary for Sen. Bob Bennett's (R-Utah) seat. Bennett was denied a spot on the primary ballot in May at the Utah's Republican state convention. 

Bennett backed Bridgewater over Tea Party favorite Lee in the June primary.
