Conn Carroll, communications director for Utah Sen. Mike Lee, sent out word earlier Wednesday that the White House was planning a “surprise” announcement for 4 p.m. regarding the designation of another national monument.
While Obama vacations in Hawaii, it appears the WH will announce an unwanted and unpopular monument designation in Utah at 4 PM— Conn Carroll (@conncarroll) December 28, 2016
It turns out that Carroll was half-right: the White House announced not one but two new national monuments: Bears Ears in Utah and Gold Butte in Nevada.
