Steve Bannon to target Hatch?

Multiple reports suggest that Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch may be the target of Steve Bannon, the former chief strategist to the White House, according to the Deseret News.

Bannon looks to challenge specific primary challengers in most of the Republican primary slots. Only Ted Cruz remains safe from Bannon’s push, the Deseret News reported.

Reports suggest Bannon is going to back Boyd Matheson, the former chief of staff to Sen. Mike Lee, the Deseret News reported.

Matheson said he plans to run regardless of Hatch’s decision to seek re-election or not.

Hatch’s communication director Matt Whitlock said this week that the 83-year-old senator "has not made a final decision regarding (whether) to continue serving after 2018. Should he decided to run again, he will win."

A new breast cancer screening method?

Intermountain Healthcare looks to study an alternative breast cancer screening method, the Deseret News reported.

The new genetics breast cancer study looks to see whether or not blood tests that look for DNA from cancer tumors can be used alongside mammograms, which would improve the way cancer is diagnosed, the Deseret News reported.

"We don’t know if this test will be effective, and that’s what this study will be evaluating," Dr. Lincoln Nadauld, executive director of the Intermountain Healthcare Precision Genomics Program, told the Deseret News.

The study will last three years, the Deseret News reported. The study will look for volunteers who will sign up during screenings. These volunteers will be compared with people who already have breast cancer diagnosis to see how effective the new method could be.

"If we’re lucky enough to identify markers of cancer … we anticipate this is something that could be used (to) complement mammograms," Nadauld said. "This is a way patients could get screened even earlier with a (blood) test."
