Podcast: Bernick and Schott on politics #331

Bob Bernick and Bryan Schott run down the week in Utah politics.

Utah Republicans are considering charging members of the media $25 to cover the 3rd District nominating convention later in June. As you can guess, Bob Bernick and Bryan Schott think that’s a stupid idea.

21 candidates have filed for Utah’s special Congressional election, including 15 Republicans. 13 will be at the convention in Utah County later this month. What can we expect from that GOP “Thunderdome”?

“Our Schools Now” plans to seek both an income and sales tax hike to boost funding for public schools. At the same time, school districts across the state are hiking teacher salaries to attract and retain educators.

Also, our weekly segment “Holy crap! Trump did what?”

Plus, we check in on international soccer, and Bryan sneaks in another reference to “Hamilton.”

And, now that Bob is a grandpa, we ask him what he’d like to be called.
