Situational awareness – September 26, 2019

Good Thursday morning from Salt Lake City

Thanks for reading Utah’s must-read daily political news rundown. Please encourage your friends and colleagues to sign up for our emails.

Here are the stories you need to pay attention to this morning:

  • President Donald Trump repeatedly urged Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden according to a readout released by the White House.
  • The whistleblower complaint about President Trump could be released to the public Thursday.
  • Utahns don’t believe using financial pressure on gun manufacturers is a proper way to achieve gun control.

Let’s talk!

We’ve started a discussion group on Facebook dedicated to Utah politics.
