With an astounding 91 percent of the vote, Tempe passed an anti “Dirty Money” initiative requiring full disclosure of the original source of all political campaign funds. Former attorney general and Phoenix mayor Terry Goddard is spearheading a similar statewide initiative. He joins the Think Tank to discuss.

Is President Donald Trump moving to surround himself exclusively with “yes Men,” all of whom agree with him and will not challenge him in any way?

What are the implications for foreign and domestic policy? J’lein Liese and Mike discuss this prospect.

Finally, an essay and some thoughts on the gun issue that may have escaped your attention.

The Think Tank airs on KTAR News 92.3 Sundays from 5 to 6 p.m. and repeats from 9-10 p.m.
