The Show regularly checks in with Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

Last week’s news that 86-year-old U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had to be hospitalized turned up the volume in Washington, where liberals and conservatives considered the possibility of another high court appointment by President Trump.

Justice Ginsburg was able to go home after being treated for chills and a fever, but with less than a year to go until Election Day, the Supreme Court will remain a hot topic for candidates.

Our co-host Steve Goldstein talked about one idea for lessening the political intensity around Supreme Court appointments with Arizona Republic Editorial Director Phil Boas in their weekly conversation. The idea is term limits, and the Republic picked up a National Review Column from John Fund on the subject.
