  • Rep. Jason Chaffetz is not running for re-election

The day after making a jaw-dropping announcement that he won't seek re-election, Congressman Jason Chaffetz told FOX 13 he may not even finish his term in office.

Thomas said his department in the office of Lieutenant Governor Spencer Cox was basing the informal information-gathering on Chaffetz's statements to local media that he might leave office early. Jason Chaffetz also worked as both the campaign managers and chief of staff for former Utah Governor John Huntsman from 2003 to 2005, according to the House of Representatives website.

Chaffetz wrote in a Facebook post on Wednesday morning, "I am healthy".

"After more than 1,500 nights away from my home, it is time".

You be the judge whether the Jets are being a willing accomplice to drive down the price of a division rival's asset. Sashi Brown isn't holding out hope he can trade for Patriots backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo .


Chaffetz said he was confident he "would continue to be re-elected by large margins", and there were "no ulterior motives" behind his decision. "I would take a serious, serious look at running for governor", Chaffetz told the Deseret News in 2016.

Chaffetz has faced mounting criticism in recent months for declining to investigate President Donald Trump and likely would have faced a bruising primary and general election battle in 2018.

Democrats championed Chaffetz announcement, saying "Chaffetz' behavior has always been beneath the dignity of the office he holds". "That Oversight is an incredibly important committee in Congress, so I was frankly surprised by his announcement today". "The more I'm here, the more I'm convinced I don't want to be in the United States Senate", Chaffetz said. "It is over the top", Chaffetz said to reporters at the time. In 2015, he won the coveted chairmanship of the House Oversight Committee.

But the pending retirement of the Republican chairman of one of the most influential congressional committees has prompted Democrats to declare victory. True to form, they declined to comment when we asked them to verify whether they were aware of "kompromat" on Chaffetz.

Mensch has been pushing conspiracy theories about Republican collusion with Russian Federation for months, including the notion that Chaffetz, who she has branded a "traitor", had been flipped by Russian Federation.
