The Party and the Political Process

Gov. Gary Herbert (L) faces the primary against Republican challenger Jonathan Johnson

Thursday, we’re asking how it is Gov. Gary Herbert ended up in a primary race. He enjoys high voter approval ratings, yet he failed to secure the nomination. Critics say it’s more proof the system is flawed. We start with Utah GOP Chairman James Evans and Count My Vote board member Kirk Jowers to debate the merits of the party’s nomination process. We’ll then turn to scholars Norman Ornstein and Thomas Mann who say the 2016 Presidential election could lead to a major rethinking of the Republican Party.
