Love Sparked From Beehive State: Clay White, Tanya Robertson Engaged
Posted at 12:38 p.m. on June 20
It didn’t take long for Clay White to decide that Tanya Robertson was the girl for him.
It was “love at first sight.” Robertson was interning for Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah. She walked into the office of another Utah Republican, Rep. Chris Stewart and caught White’s eye. White, a legislative correspondent for Stewart, knew he had to take immediate action.
Under the guise of “work,” he made multiple visits to the Chaffetz office before he mustered up the courage to ask Robertson on a date. They dated long distance when Robertson returned to school in Utah. Upon graduation, she became Chaffetz’s scheduler.
On May 9, Chaffetz’s then-chief of staff Justin Harding sent Robertson on an errand to the speaker’s office. When she arrived, the staff assistant brought her out to the balcony where White was waiting. He got down on one knee and proposed. A camera nearby captured the moment, and Robertson happily accepted.
The wedding is planned for Oct. 11 in Washington, D.C.
