By now, you’ve probably heard about Evan McMullin. He’s running for president of the United States as an independent third party candidate, which isn’t all that unique. Unlike essentially every other such candidate though, McMullin has a legitimate shot at winning electoral votes, specifically here in his home state of Utah. But who is this upstart? And what does he mean when he says he wants to build a “new conservative movement”? McMullin joins us on Monday to discuss his presidential bid.


  • Evan McMullin is an independent candidate for president of the United States of America on the ballot in 11 states.
  • Matt Canham is an investigative reporter at the Salt Lake Tribune specializing in politics.
  • McKay Coppins is a senior writer for the BuzzFeed News politics team, and the author of The Wilderness [Amazon|Indiebound], about the battle over the future of the Republican Party.
