(Salt Lake City) -- Pennsylvania Republican U.S. Senator Pat Toomey is getting some help on the campaign trail from one of his colleagues.

Utah GOP Senator Mike Lee is cancelling his campaign events in Utah to instead campaign in the commonwealth for Toomey and other Senate candidates Nevada, Colorado and other states. 

Lee's political director Marcus Jessop say  Lee is instead planning to hit the campaign trail to help Republicans try to keep control of the chamber.

He's planning events to help Toomey, as well as Senators Marco Rubio in Florida and Roy Blunt in Missouri, and GOP Senate candidates Darryl Glenn in Colorado, Todd Young in Indiana and Joe Heck in Nevada.

Lee's re-election in Utah this year is considered relatively assured. He's a popular GOP senator in a largely Republican state.
