THE THINK TANK

Chuck Coughlin, Tom Ryan join Think Tank for this week’s political roundup

Feb 8, 2019, 2:00 PM

There’s no shortage of breaking political news this week.

Political consultant Chuck Coughlin and attorney Tom Ryan join host Mike O’Neil in KTAR News 92.3 FM’s Think Tank to discuss some of the juiciest, including:

• Racism in Virginia and Arizona: We compare an contrast the cases of Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam and our own Rep. David Stringer.

• Robert Mueller apparently leaving no (Roger) Stone unturned.

• Sen. Michelle Ugenti-Rita’s bill to prohibit voters from dropping off early ballots at the polling place: Another attempt at voter suppression?

• Ducey’s tax veto, a true “man bites dog” story as our Republican governor vetoes a Republican initiated tax bill.

BONUS: In an homage to the late great Groucho Marx, we attempt to get our guests to say one of three “magic words.”

The Think Tank airs on KTAR News 92.3 FM on Sunday at 1-2 p.m. and repeats at 9-10 p.m.

Podcasts are available after each show is broadcast.
