The Show regularly checks in with Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about the big issues facing the state and the region — featured in the newspaper’s Viewpoints section.

The Democratic presidential candidates have faced off in their first pair of debates, and polls that came soon after still show former Vice President Joe Biden leading the pack. But others — in particular, California Sen. Kamala Harris — made some strides.

In a column for The Arizona Republic, Jon Gabriel asserts that the Democrats actually didn’t perform especially well and are making things easier for President Trump.

Phil Boas, editorial director of The Arizona Republic, joined The Show for his weekly appearance to talk about Gabriel’s column and the Democratic hopes to win the presidency in 2020.
