Situational awareness – April 2, 2019

Good Tuesday morning from Salt Lake City.

  • Our “Political Insiders” and readers say Sen. Luz Escamilla is the frontrunner to be the next mayor of Salt Lake City.

  • The White House granted security clearances to at least 25 people who were initially rejected over serious national security concerns.
