‘Utah Politics’ podcast: McAdams vs. Owens, Cox on the coronavirus and the Bagley controversy

Salt Lake Tribune columnist Robert Gehrke joins host Bryan Schott to dissect the latest Utah political headlines.

There’s a lot going on in the congressional race between Democratic Rep. Ben McAdams and Republican Burgess Owens. House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy makes a trip to Utah to fundraise for Owens. A multi-million dollar advertising blitz is set to get underway. Does it matter that neither Owens nor McAdams live in the district they’re vying to represent? And Owens trashes Mitt Romney over impeachment.

Spencer Cox reemerges as the head of Utah’s coronavirus response and Utah State University responds to a campus outbreak.

Police object to Black Lives Matter in the classroom while cartoonist Pat Bagley courts controversy.

America sure could use some empathy from its leaders right about now.

Plus, we look ahead to what will be making news next week.
