Challenging the Caucus Compromise

12-2_utah_gop.jpg

Tuesday on RadioWest, we’re talking about the latest in the effort to reform the way political candidates are nominated in Utah. Lawmakers in the last legislative session passed a law that reduced the power of party delegates to select candidates. Opponents of the old system say that extremists in both parties have too much influence early on. Now, the state Republican Party is challenging that law and it’s setting up a struggle between the moderates and more conservative members of the party.
