FREDERICKSBURG, VA – April 12, 2022 –  Today, Senator Bryce Reeves (R-Spotsylvania) announced a new endorsement for his campaign in the 7th Congressional District by U.S. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah). 

Senator Lee said, “Our nation is at a tipping point. More than ever, we need to elect people who are ready to serve and contribute day one in office. Bryce is a leader that can analyze complex issues and find conservative solutions to fix the problems our nation faces. Bryce Reeves is not only an advocate for our principles; he’s also a proven fighter and constitutional conservative who can turn solutions into law while Democrats are in power. In 2016 Bryce single-handedly worked to get a fifty-state concealed carry reciprocity bill signed into law under a Democrat governor. With two years left of the Biden presidency, we will need champions like him in Congress who share my same values. He has my full endorsement in his race against Congresswoman Abigail Spanberger.” 

Bryce Reeves stated, “I couldn’t be more proud and thankful of the endorsement from Senator Mike Lee. He is a principled constitutional conservative who works diligently for his constituents. Senator Lee is a leader protecting our constitutional rights and a fighter for reducing regulatory burden on businesses and families. Over the past few years under Democratic leadership, we have seen an assault on our civil liberties and an increase of economic instability. I look forward to working with Senator Lee in Washington to restore our personal freedoms and rein in wasteful spending creating record high inflation.” 

Senator Lee was elected in 2010 as Utah’s 16th Senator. Mike Lee has spent his career defending the fundamental liberties of all Americans and advocating for America’s founding constitutional principles. 

Other key endorsements for the Reeves campaign include activists like Paul Galanti and Pete Snyder as well as national groups and leaders, including former Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, former Governor and US Senator George Allen, Senator Marco Rubio, SEAL PAC, GOPAC, and FreedomWorks. 

Bryce Reeves has also received many endorsements from the law enforcement community both nationally and locally.
