FILE - In this Nov. 16, 2010, file photo, Rep. Marlin Stutzman, R-Ind. is seen on Capitol Hill in Washington. The contest for the No. 3 spot in the House GOP has turned into tea party conservatives’ last, best shot at congressional leadership after getting shut out of the top two jobs in the shakeup following Majority Leader Eric Cantor’s surprise primary defeat. All three _ Steve Scalise of Louisiana, Peter Roskam of Illinois, and Stutzman _ are to make their case to GOP rank-and-file lawmakers Wednesday ahead of votes on Thursday.

Mike Lee Endorses Marlin Stutzman

This is a big endorsement from Senator Mike Lee. It puts him in direct opposition to Senator Mitch McConnell. McConnell is adamantly opposed to Stutzman if only because Marlin Stutzman has a well known track record of defying John Boehner. McConnell knows Stutzman would not bend over for McConnell.

Mike Lee endorsing Stutzman also makes very clear who the conservative is in the race.
