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.

Sen. John McCain passed away in 2018, but he was back in the headlines over the past few days.

One story featured Republican gubernatorial candidate Kari Lake declaring that McCain was “ reaching up from the grave trying to keep power in Arizona.” The other found former McCain advisor Steve Schmidt feuding with the late senator’s daughter, Meghan, on social media.

Phil Boas of the Republic wrote about Schmidt’s comments in a Sunday column. The Show spoke with him to learn about his take.
