The Show regularly checks in with the editorial board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

U.S. Sen. Kyrsten Sinema faced strong criticism from her fellow Democrats last week after saying in a speech that she wouldn’t support filibuster reform — even to help advance voting rights legislation.

Two Republic columnists, Elvia Díaz and Greg Moore, expressed their disappointment with Sinema.

The Show spoke with their colleague Phil Boas to learn about the columns and his own perspective.
