In fundraising appeal, Sen. Mike Lee claims the anti-Trump Lincoln Project is gunning for him next year


Sen. Mike Lee is fundraising nonstop for his 2022 re-election campaign, and using the anti-Trump Lincoln Project to boost his war chest. In an email sent Monday, Lee’s campaign claimed the group of former Republican political operatives and consultants is targeting him for defeat next year.

“The Lincoln Project — the same group of former Republicans that opposed President Trump’s re-election and attacked my Senate colleagues this past election — just announced I’m their TOP TARGET in 2022.”

Not quite according to Kurt Bardella, a senior adviser to the group.

“Sen. Lee is on our list, but we haven’t decided how high yet,” he said in an email to The Tribune.

Lee’s email names one of the Lincoln Project’s co-founders, Park City resident Steve Schmidt, as a possible opponent next year, calling him “formidable and well-funded.”

According to the Federal Election Commission, Lee starts the 2022 election cycle with more than $500,000 of campaign cash in the bank. Lee already has three declared challengers for next year: Democrats Austin Searle and Allen Glines and independent candidate Dr. Evan Barlow.
