SALT LAKE CITY — Sen. Mike Lee and Rep. Rob Bishop have joined the Utah Republican Party’s court battle to overturn the state’s controversial law for nominating candidates for public office.
Lee and Bishop filed an amicus, or friend-of-the-court, brief backing the state GOP’s petition before the U.S Supreme Court. The party asked the high court last month to hear its appeal of a lower court ruling upholding the law passed as SB54 nearly five years ago.
