The Non-Candidate

Michael Warren, The Weekly Standard

Utah’s Senator Mike Lee is the most important Republican not running for president and Lee’s focus on the family infiltrates every policy proposal he touches. “I think we’ve failed as Republicans to fully appreciate the fact that the family’s not only a social unit with economic implications, it’s an economic unit with social implications,” he says. The problem with government, he adds, isn’t only that it’s too large, but that it doesn’t work, at least not for middle-class families.
