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.

President Donald Trump’s unwillingness to accept defeat helped lead to the “Stop the Steal” efforts and the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. For many observers, that was a clear sign that the Republican Party’s infighting had reached a level that could cause it electoral problems for at least the next couple of cycles.

But in a new column, the Republic’s Phil Boas writes that recent developments — including Major League Baseball’s decision to move its All-Star Game out of Georgia — are helping stem that tide.

The Show spoke with Boas about his reasoning.
