Here are the media links we have so far. The Vernal TV interview and Deseret News stories are still pending. X94 radio interview (Vernal) KVEL talk radio interview (Vernal) Utah Public Radio interview (statewide)
The KVEL radio interview is one that's going to stick with me for a while. The questions were somewhat confrontational, but the interviewer, Steve Evans, is one of the kindest, most decent people I've come across. He did this interview at some professional risk to himself - even though he paired it with someone to argue the "other side".
The College Republican meetings were also wonderful. We made great connections at BYU, Weber State, and Utah State. There was lots of good discussion around bipartisanship among young people on climate change.
