Sen. Orrin Hatch's (R-UT) office was totally just joking when it tweeted an image of the front page of the Salt Lake Tribune, thanking the newspaper for naming him "Utahn of the Year". "For good or for ill", they wrote. "Orrin G. Hatch as the 2017 Utahn of the Year has little to do with the fact that, after 42 years, he is the longest-serving Republican senator in USA history, that he has been a senator from Utah longer than three-fifths of the state's population has been alive", the paper wrote. But this year, as many times in the past, The Tribune has assigned the label to the Utahn who, over the past 12 months, has done the most.
Hatch's part in the dramatic dismantling of the Bears Ears and Grand Staircase-Escalante national monuments. Orrin Hatch suggested that he would be seeking re-election in 2018 because, in his words, "I still have the chairmanship of the Finance Committee and they'll never be another Utahn that's chairman of the committee, at least not for 40 or 50 years".
It called out the seven-term Hatch for "his utter lack of integrity that rises from his unquenchable thirst for power".
"It would be good for Utah if Hatch, having finally caught the Great White Whale of tax reform, were to call it a career", the editorial stated. "If he doesn't, the voters should end it for him", the editors conclude.
Hatch spokesman Matt Whitlock released a statement accusing the Salt Lake Tribune of pursuing an "unquenchable thirst for clicks" in their scathing Christmas Day editorial published on Monday. Spencer Cox is the Republican lieutenant governor of Utah, while Rudy Gobert plays for the Utah Jazz. The prospect of a Republican senator in Utah willing to publicly break with the White House has reportedly led the president to urge Hatch to seek re-election.
Or as one Twitter put it: "Reading us fundamental". President Ronald Reagan, who maintained a close alliance with the notorious racist South African regime, vetoed the legislation, but his veto was overridden by Congress. Hatch voted against overriding Reagan's veto.
Several hours later, he did implicitly nod to the substance of the editorial, pointing toward the paper's previous editorial in support of the tax bill.
