Highground’s Chuck Coughlin joins the Think Tank as we review several of the hottest political issues of the month:

• The failed California gubernatorial recall and implications for 2022.

• Vaccine politics: President Joe Biden goes big, Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich sues.

• The city of Phoenix and the Arizona School Boards Association are suing the state and it looks as though much of what the Legislature passed in the 2021 session may be legally invalid. Back to the drawing board?

• The Arizona Senate’s election “audit” loses another round in court. And they apparently have lost majority legislative support for the entire effort. How will this end?

All this and more hot topics as Chuck Coughlin and Mike O’Neil review the hot issues of the month.

The Think Tank airs on KTAR 92.3 FM on Saturday 6-7 p.m. and Sundays 9-10 p.m.

Podcasts are available after broadcast.
