Time Change for Tonight's Tele-Townhall - Event to Start at 7:30 p.m. MT

During the series of town halls I held in August, many of you had questions about how our country should respond to growing threats abroad.  Many Utahns were concerned about the rise of ISIS in Iraq and Syria and Russian aggression towards Ukraine.  I responded to these concerns by asserting that as Commander in Chief, the president has the responsibility to come before Congress and the American people to present his strategy for dealing with foreign threats to our national security.  Tonight, President Obama is delivering a speech about his strategy for dealing with the turmoil in Iraq and Syria as a result of the growing power of ISIS.  His speech is scheduled to start at 7:00 p.m. MT, and this was the time that I was planning on holding my tele-townhall tonight.  Out of respect to the office of the presidency, I am planning to postpone tonight's tele-townhall by thrity minutes.  The event will now be held at 7:30 p.m. MT.  I look forward to discussing the president's speech with you along with any other topics you would like to discuss.
