The Show regularly checks in with the Editorial Board of the Arizona Republic to talk about current issues facing the state and the region — featured in columns on the newspaper’s op-ed pages.

Gov. Doug Ducey has decided to send Arizona National Guard troops to the southern border to help deal with what he — and many other Republicans — are calling a crisis. And the state’s Democratic U.S. Sens. Kyrsten Sinema and Mark Kelly announced support for the move.

In her latest column for the Republic, Elvia Diaz expressed frustration with Sinema and Kelly. The Show spoke with Phil Boas, editorial page editor of the Republic, about the column.
