How Donald Trump could beat Hillary Clinton. Bishop to unveil Public Lands Initiative today. Lt. Guv says Utah GOP can't ban signature seekers from primary.

News of small-scale terror plots on American soil, foiled or successful, keep voters in a state of anxiety. Spanish-language ads highlighting his support for a strong military bolster Trump.
