Independent presidential candidate Evan McMullin leads Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in Utah polls. Utah GOP leader James Evans receives threatening phone calls following his claims on national television that Bill Clinton had fathered an illegitimate child. And Gov. Gary Herbert suggests that the Environmental Protection Agency steps in to address Utah’s issues with ozone pollution.

On Friday at 9 a.m., Salt Lake Tribune reporters Emma Penrod, Tony Semerad, Matt Canham and Robert Gehrke, as well as editorial writer George Pyle, join KCPW’s Roger McDonough to talk about the week’s top stories.
