Utah's Daily Policy Resource, Brought to you by Utah Policy
Good Tuesday morning from Salt Lake City. It's caucus day in Utah! Welcome to Utah's must-read daily political news roundup.
Mitt Romney talks caucuses. Hatch says firing Mueller would be the "stupidest thing" Trump could do. Congress closing in on a $1.3 trillion spending bill.
Here's a scoop! Gov. Mitt Romney is an aficionado of pancakes. We discussed some of his favorite flapjack places before our interview got rolling (you can listen to the podcast below). Bonus scoop: Ann Romney often makes pancakes from scratch, and her secret ingredient is whipped egg whites. That's the kind of hard-hitting reporting you expect from UtahPolicy.com.
Happy 164th birthday GOP! On this day in 1854, the Republican Party was organized in Ripon, Wisconsin. You don't look a day over 155!
