The U.S. map at the museum created at President Clinton's childhood home is now a cover-all.
Lonnie Carter of Taylorsville became the first person from Utah to visit the Clinton Center Sunday. Before that, residents from the other 49 states had visited the center.Red hat pins placed in the center's large U.S. map by visitors now dot every state, said Becky Moore, the center's executive director.
"We have all 50 states taken care of," she said. "I think it's fantastic since we've only been open one year. I really don't know what the projection was on the first day when we opened, but I feel like everybody should be pretty pleased that we've had all states represented now just in one year's time."
Moore said a news report about the lack of Utah visitors apparently made headlines in that state. She said she was interviewed by a Taylorsville radio station Tuesday about the situation.
Moore said her radio host was incredulous that no one from Utah had visited the birthplace.
"He said people were talking about it all over town," she said. "Every place he would go, they were commenting, `OK, let's get a bus, let's get a plane - we need to get to Hope, Ark.' He said we just can't imagine why no one has stopped in."
Moore said she could hear shouts and cheers in the background when she told the radio reporter of Carter's visit.
Wyoming and Utah were the last two states that did not have a visitor to the center. The race ended May 23 when Suzanne Cross Douglas, Wyo., who wryly identified herself as the state's lone Democrat, signed the book.
