  "Eight years ago, Bob Inglis ran for a seventh term in the U.S. House of Representatives and didn’t even make it out of the Republican primary. He lost by nearly 3 to 1. His estrangement from South Carolina voters ran deep, friends-gone-missing and allies-turned-enemies deep.

The chief reason Inglis was rejected by his constituents? He not only believed climate change was real but, as a solution, he proposed a tax on carbon. In a deeply conservative corner of one of the most conservative states in America, Republicans did not welcome those views." James Rainey, NBC News

We're joined by Bob Inglis on this episode of Access Utah
