Breitbart: 1,500 to 2,000 supporters of Senator Mike Lee, waving American flags, and holding home-made signs, gave a ten minute ovation to their favorite Senator at a rally in Salt Lake City, Saturday morning, countering the media narrative that ‘his constituents don’t like him.’
Two “nasty protesters” were reportedly arrested.
The Salt Lake Tribune reported:
The Republican senator has taken a beating in recent weeks, not just from Democrats but members of his party for leading the fight — along with Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas — that forced a 16-day partial government shut down.
“I’ve read polls that said some people in Utah don’t like Mike Lee,” organizer Amelia Powers told the crowd gathered at Riverfront West Park in South Jordan. “But I’m lucky to be from a place that has a senator like Mike Lee. He has represented Utah well.”
Powers and a friend organized the rally in less than a week with the help of Facebook and Twitter. It attracted everyone from families with young children to senior citizens and veterans.

About Ask Marion
I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!!
"The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy";
"Do something that scares you every day!";
"The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place".
At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it.
After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare.
But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds,
as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country.
And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
