Podcast: Bernick and Schott on politics #338

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

The GOP 3rd District primary election is finally over. John Curtis is now the overwhelming favorite to win in November.

Under the old system, Curtis would have never even made the primary ballot, so the win is also a victory for SB54.

Operation Rio Grande is underway, but Utah needs a waiver from the Trump administration to implement their limited Medicaid expansion in order to fund the operation in the long-term.

Julie Dole is posting old endorsements from six years ago in a desperate and sad attempt to hang on to her job as interim Salt Lake County Recorder. 

Plus, our weekly segment, “Holy crap! Trump did what?” wherein we discuss an American president defending Nazis.
