Salt Lake Tribune Washington Correspondent Thomas Burr
(KCPW News) Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz became the face of the Republican Party on national security issues this week as he sparred with the State Department while conducting a hearing into last month’s deadly attack on the American consulate in Benghazi, Libya. At the same time, the lawmaker happens to be a major surrogate for Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign. Every Friday, we talk with Thomas Burr, Washington Correspondent for The Salt Lake Tribune and author of Political Cornflakes, a daily, online round-up of Utah politics. He spoke with KCPW’s Jeff Robinson about the hearing.
