Mike Lee, the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate in Utah and a tea party favorite, is a newcomer on the political field. Emerging from a crowded and bitter primary race, he has to unify his party before facing Democrat Sam Granato, another first-time politician and Utah business owner, in a race that many see as the culmination of the anti-incumbent and anti-traditional-politician sentiment growing across the country. As part of a Politics Daily series providing background about the major candidates in 2010, here are some answers to frequently asked questions about his life.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
