Utah's Mike Lee was elected to the U.S. Senate in 2010 and is currently the Senate’s youngest member. A lawyer, life-long student of the Constitution, and former law clerk to U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito, he currently serves on the Senate Judiciary Committee, Foreign Relations Committee, Energy and Natural Resources Committee, and the Joint Economic Committee. Senator Lee and his wife Sharon have three children and live in Alpine, Utah. Jim DeMint was elected senator of South Carolina in 2004 and then chairman of the Senate Steering Committee in 2006. For standing up against wasteful spending in Congress and saving Americans about $17 billion, Wall Street Journal editor Steve Moore called DeMint the "taxpayers' greatest ally." DeMint was also ranked as the Senate's most conservative member by National Journal and as the # 1 senator voting for responsible tax and spending policies by the National Taxpayers Union. The senator and his wife, Debbie, have four grown children, are doting new grandparents, and live in Greenville, South Carolina.
