Long-serving Utah US Senator Orrin Hatch dies

Orrin Hatch Utah US Senator has been a staunch conservative on most economic and social issues, and has collaborated with Democrats several times during his long career on issues ranging from stem cell research to the rights of people with disabilities to expanding children’s health insurance.

He also formed friendships across the aisle, particularly with the late Democratic Senator Edward M. Kennedy.

Orrin Hatch Utah Senator has also defended GOP issues such as abortion restrictions and helped shape the US Supreme Court, including defending Justice Clarence Thomas against allegations of sexual harassment during hearings.

He later became an ally of Republican President Donald Trump, using his role as chair of the powerful Senate Finance Committee to rewrite US tax laws to the president’s desk.

In return, Trump Hatch helped make a major case for Republicans in Utah with a controversial move to scale back a national monument announced by previous presidents.

“Senator Oren J. Hatch embodied the American dream,” Matt Sandgren, executive director of the Hatch Foundation, said in a statement.

“The son of a carpenter and a gypsum foamer was born, and the Orrin Hatch US Senator was conquered
on the poverty of his youth to become a member of the United States Senate.”

Utah Governor Spencer Cox tweeted that “Utah grieves for the Hutch family.”

Cox, a Republican, wrote that “his legacy of public service has made a real difference to our state and nation.”
