Situational awareness – June 26, 2020

Good morning from Salt Lake City

Let’s Friday!


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

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

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

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

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

  • The CDC says the number of coronavirus cases in the U.S. could be 10 times higher.
  • The Trump administration asks the Supreme Court to invalidate the Affordable Care Act.
  • Most Utahns say race relations in the U.S. are in bad shape.


Today’s question comes from Paul Metcalf (No cheating with Google!):

“Who was Utah’s last territorial governor, and who was Utah’s first state governor?”
