Podcast: Bernick and Schott on Politics – Episode #297

Bob Bernick and Bryan Schott discuss the week in Utah politics.

Mike Pence visits Utah and touts educational vouchers to a state that soundly rejected them. Will his message of educational innovation resonate?

Utah Republicans decide to give up the ghost on their legal fight against SB54…for now. Like a zombie, it could come back though.

Pro-educational groups are planning an effort to hike income taxes in order to better fund public education.

Plus, watch Bob struggle to pronounce plurality. And, Mike Pence urges Utahns to pray to heal America, unless you happen to be an illegal immigrant – then Donald Trump wants you to leave.

Also, in case you haven’t been paying attention, Utah is not going to be a battleground state in 2016.
