For the first time in nearly a decade, Republicans will control the White House, the House of Representatives and the Senate. Now the GOP is under intense pressure to deliver and follow through on many of the promises they have made during the Obama administration and over the course of the most recent campaign.
Among those prepared to hit the ground running on behalf of the American people is U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah). Lee, who was reelected to second term last November, spoke exclusively to Opportunity Lives about what he hopes to accomplish as a member of the Judiciary Committee and as the Chairman of the powerful Senate Steering Committee that is largely responsible for deciding the legislative agenda for the upper chamber.
When asked what he hopes to accomplish most as a member of the Senate, the Utah lawmaker said, “I want to return as much power, as possible, to the people – that is my main goal.”
But what about the president-elect’s pick for Attorney General – Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.)? What is Lee looking for? What are the most important qualities to lead the Department of Justice?
