The 2022 Republican candidates for U.S. Senate, from left to right, Sen. Mike Lee, Becky Edwards and Ally Isom.

Sen. Mike Lee has won Utah’s Republican primary by fending off attacks from two challengers who didn’t vote for former President Donald Trump in 2020.

The second-term Republican and Trump loyalist defeated former state lawmaker Becky Edwards and political operative Ally Isom in Tuesday’s primary. Both criticized him for his unwavering loyalty to Trump and uncompromising lawmaking style. Lee now advances to the November election to face off against independent candidate Evan McMullin — a former Republican who left the party after Trump’s ascendance and has won backing from the state Democratic Party.
