Trump's "rookie mistake" isn't acceptable

GOP 2016 Convention Trump Pence Flag

Clemens will work to find common-sense solutions in Congress

BN 032216 Democratic Caucus 20-11

Now that Donald Trump has destroyed the myth that the GOP is the sole guardian of our Utah values, this year is the time for Utahns to more closely examine candidates for local races. Our congressman is a good place to start. In his 14 years in Washington, what has U.S. Rep. Rob Bishop accomplished...
