Clinton Cuts Short Utah Visit

March 2, 1999

PARK CITY, Utah (AP) _ A skeletal White House press corps was left behind, waiting for a charter flight home, when President Clinton cut short his visit to Utah.

But with hot tubs in the condominiums and fresh snow on the slopes there was little reason for complaint.

The White House advance staff scrambled to inform reporters and the rest of Clinton’s entourage spread out around the Deer Valley resort when Clinton and his wife, Hillary, decided to head home Monday, instead of Tuesday, as daughter Chelsea returned to school.

But the Miami Air plane that had ferried reporters along Clinton’s swing out West, which took him through Tucson, San Francisco, and Los Angeles before, had returned to Miami and couldn’t return to Salt Lake City in time to take off Monday evening.
