Podcast: Bernick and Schott on politics #336

Bob Bernick and Bryan Schott dissect a busy week in Utah politics.

Ballots have gone out to voters in the GOP primary in the 3rd CD. Provo Mayor John Curtis has a lead, but will it hold up?

Curtis scored a key endorsement from Gov. Gary Herbert, but Chris Herrod has recruited Texas Senator Ted Cruz, who will campaign for him on Saturday. Will those help?

Bob and Bryan explain why Curtis is likely to win the August election, but he shouldn’t take anything for granted at this point.

State leaders have vowed a crackdown on the violence and chaos surrounding the homeless population in downtown Salt Lake City. What does that mean, and what ramifications might come out of that?

Sen. Howard Stephenson said something kinda stupid when venting his frustrations about the slow rate of adoption in Utah’s schools.

Plus, on this week’s “Holy crap! Trump did what?” we talk about transgender soldiers, North Korea, Twitter, Anthony Scaramucci, Jeff Sessions, Robert Meuller, Chris Stewart and why MSNBC is the #1 cable channel.
