Steve Krafft has been a reporter for Fox 10 since 1985. He has won two Emmy awards and was once named Arizona Journalist of the Year.

He is our sole guest in the Think Tank this week. We engage Krafft in a wide-ranging discussion including:

  • Will Donald Trump end up splitting the GOP into two parties?
  • Given the recent Trump deals with Democrats, what place is there in the party for traditional conservative Republicans?  Where does this leave the Freedom Caucus, who seem to have cut themselves out of the negotiation process?
  • The Phoenix police response at the end of the recent Trump rally in Phoenix — was it appropriate?
  • What are the merits of the attorney general’s recent lawsuit against the Board of Regents on tuition hikes?  (Krafft is also an attorney).

All this and more in this week’s Think Tank.
