‘Trib Talk’: A big night for Utah Democrats, Salt Lake County incumbents and medical marijuana on Election Day

(Rick Egan | The Salt Lake Tribune) Mitt Romney gives his victory speech, at the Romney Headquarters, in Orem, on election night, Tuesday, Nov. 6, 2018.

Election night saw Democrats regain control of the U.S. House, while falling short of regaining the U.S. Senate.

In Utah, a large turnout led to presumed victories for medical marijuana legalization, Medicaid expansion and Mitt Romney for U.S. Senate. But other races, like an anti-gerrymandering initiative and the closely watched Mia Love/Ben McAdams race, remain too close to call.

On this week’s episode of “Trib Talk,” Tribune reporters Taylor Stevens and Bethany Rodgers and columnist Robert Gehrke join Benjamin Wood to discuss the results of the 2018 vote.
