Rep. Jason Chaffetz is not running for re-election

Irune Rengel | 21 Abril, 2017, 02:23

People reading the tea leaves are speculating that Chaffetz's decision could be a bad omen for Republicans next year. The Salt Lake Tribune reported on Tuesday that Democrat Kathryn Allen had outraised Jason Chaffetz by more than $400,000 in preparation for 2018, with a large chunk of that money coming after Chaffetz blundered by suggesting Americans should prioritize health insurance over a new iPhone.

But Phillips noted Chaffetz is "known for dripping with ambition". Chaffetz will remain as the chair of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.

"It's a tough decision".

After Chaffetz announced he would not seek reelection in 2018, Watson directed her Twitter followers to a tweet from Louise Mensch that said her "sources" told her there was compromising material, or "kompromat", on the Utah congressman. "I really meant it when I said I was going to get in, serve and get out".

Those performances set her up for three and one-half minute victory in NY on a chilly and windy day. I had to learn how to run differently from the track, a different foot strike.

Chaffetz, a longtime fixture in Utah politics, has hinted before at potentially running for governor in 2020, and his announcement could be the first step toward that goal. He also held public hearings and filed endless requests during the 2016 presidential campaign to look into the use of a private email server by Hillary Clinton while she was secretary of State.

Chaffetz ended his Facebook post supporting Evans' claim that he believes the third district will remain Republican. On Facebook, Chaffetz argued public service should not be for a full career. Many of you have heard me advocate, "Get in, serve, and get out".

Chaffetz said he has "no ulterior motives" and is healthy and confident he would be re-elected.

Ultimately, Chaffetz may come back to the political scene in the future, and was careful to keep that option open to himself in his statement Wednesday.

News first broke of Tryamkin's departure on Wednesday, with the Canucks officially acknowledging his decision Thursday morning. This past year, he put up two goals and nine points in 66 regular season games, skating out for nearly 17 minutes a night.

"By announcing now, I hope to give prospective candidates time to lay the groundwork for a successful run", he wrote.

Gov. Spencer Cox told the WSJ that officials are preparing for a special election in Chaffetz's 3rd Congressional District. Chaffetz won 73 percent of the vote last fall, and Trump won the district by 24 points.

As chairman, Chaffetz raised his political profile investigating waste, fraud and abuse under the Obama administration, taking a specific interest in IT and workforce issues.

Democrats championed Chaffetz announcement, saying "Chaffetz' behavior has always been beneath the dignity of the office he holds".
