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.

It was an eventful week last week for Arizona’s senior senator.

Sen. Kyrsten Sinema reportedly made multiple trips to the White House to talk about the pending budget bill. She was the target of a lot of ire from Democrats over her refusal, at least so far, to back the proposal.

Sinema was also the subject of a pair of editorials in the Republic over the weekend.

The Show spoke with Phil Boas, the editorial page editor, to learn about them, starting with his own column on how Sinema may be the biggest radical in Congress.
