Utah Sen. Mike Lee wants the U.S. to sever ties with the United Nations.

Lee's proposal is the latest in a long streak of anti-U.N. measures from Utah that stretches back to the founding of the John Birch Society in the 1950s.

Good evening from West Valley City, where I'm at the election night event for Republican Celeste Maloy.

She's the favorite to win tonight's special election in Utah's 2nd Congressional District to replace Rep. Chris Stewart, who retired from Congress earlier this year.

Another bad week for organizers of the Utah flag ballot initiative.

They added just 3,470 to their signature total last week.

They still must collect (at minimum) 87K by mid-February - an average of more than 5,800 per week.
