With seemingly every high-level Republican in Tampa, Fla., for the Republican National Convention this week, some have asked who exactly is running Utah in the interim?
Well, it's still Gov. Gary Herbert. But under the succession of command, Senate President Michael Waddoups, R-Taylorsville, has filled in for at least one official duty while the executive branch has been in Florida.
Waddoups met with South African dignitaries at the Capitol Thursday morning a bit of business Herbert would have normally handled. But the meeting had been scheduled well in advance of Herbert's Tampa trip.
