A Blue Senate and Third Party Politics in Utah
A blue Senate, early voting, and third party politics in Utah on this week’s Hinckley Report. Could the Senate shift from Republican to Democrat? Hillary Clinton and the DNC are pivoting to down ticket races in order to make the case to voters, while GOP infighting and Donald Trump are forcing Republicans to do the same. Early voting metrics are coming in…what does it mean that more people are choosing this method than years past? In Utah, Evan McMullin is holding his own in the race for President. Will a victory matter beyond 2016?
Natalie Gochnour of the Kem C. Gardner Policy Institute, Terry Gildea of KUER, and Former Executive Director of the Utah Republican Party Spencer Stokes join host Jason Perry on this week’s edition of The Hinckley Report.
