Situational awareness – June 19, 2020

Good Friday morning from Salt Lake City


11 days to the 2020 Utah primary elections (6/30/2020)

137 Days to the 2020 election (11/3/2020)

215 days to inauguration day (01/20/2021)

220 days to the start of the 2021 Utah Legislature (1/25/2021)

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

  • Supreme Court rules against the Trump administration’s efforts to end DACA.
  • Utah lawmakers cut millions from the budget. 
  • California will require people to wear masks when in public.


Today’s question comes to us from Doug Foxley. 

I was a Utah Governor, and later I served as Secretary of War. My campaign slogan in my governor’s race was the best one ever. Who am I and what was my slogan? Bonus points, my nephew is a famous actor, what is his name?

If you know the answer, drop me an email at [email protected]. We’ll pick a winner at random from the correct entries. 

Good luck!
