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.

Last week saw former Vice President Mike Pence talking about Republicans focusing on their own positive messages to win elections.
