As if we needed more reminders that the political spotlight is focused on our state, you can barely turn on the television these days without running into Arizona — and not just in political ads.

Last week, "60 Minutes" featured an interview with secretary of state candidate Mark Finchem. "Saturday Night Live" mocked gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake, and "The Daily Show with Trevor Noah" took on Lake’s proposed policies.

The Show spoke with Bill Goodykoontz, media critic for the Arizona Republic, to learn about this national attention on the state’s politics.
