Sen. Mike Lee spent a few days this week on the cover of The Salt Lake Tribune, and for completely different reasons. Every week, Tribune Washington correspondent Thomas Burr talks with KCPW's Roger McDonough about the latest political news.
This week's topics include: Lee's reaction to the compromise between the Count My Vote supporters and those who wanted to keep the caucus-convention system; Why two Utah prosecutors are mentioning Lee and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid in the investigation into former Utah Attorney General John Swallow; and why it took so long to confirm a Utahn to the 10th Circuit Court of Appeals.
Burr also previews his story coming this weekend on how two Utahns in Congress are hoping to land powerful chairmanships next year.
