Chaffetz avoids re-election battle, eyes Utah governor race

21 April 2017, 03:44 | Taylor George

Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, announced that he will not run for re-election in 2018 and will not seek any public office next year.

Jason Chaffetz's decision Wednesday not to run for re-election in 2018 is the clearest signal yet that ambitious, young politicians view time served in Washington as an impediment to seeking - and winning - higher office.

Hours later, Chaffetz released a statement, adding: "My future plans are not yet finalized but I haven't ruled out the possibility of leaving early".

Chaffetz said on his Facebook page that he had consulted with his family and decided that he would not be a candidate for any office in 2018 and would return to the private sector when his term ends in January of 2019. Allen took issue with Chaffetz's comments about the need for low-income Americans to make purchasing healthcare more of a priority than buying the latest iPhone.

"I take him at his word that he's exhausted, that it's time to take a look at his own life and 1,500 days on that cot has taken its toll".

The government is also planning on extending rent control to all private rental units, including those built after 1991. The Northern Ontario Party says a robust economy is a major reason for Toronto's housing shortage.

In January of 2016, he told the Deseret News he would consider running for governor of Utah in 2020. According to an intel community source, the Federal Bureau of Investigation has learned that Russian Federation has "kompromat" blackmail material on Chaffetz and has been using it to keep him in line with regard to Trump's Russian Federation scandal. This was hammered at home for Chaffetz in February at a town hall meeting where he was booed and told "do your job" after saying his committee would not investigate Trump's former national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Twitter was awash with rumors Thursday about Chaffetz's impending resignation, invariably attributed to unnamed "sources" in Utah.

For the time being, Chaffetz says, he will "return to the private sector". He says the state of Utah needs to figure out how that would work.

The Utah Representative also assured the public he still holds the full support of House Speaker Paul Ryan.

The Salt Lake Tribune reported Monday on a grassroots crowdfunding effort by Kathryn Allen for the 2018 Democratic nomination in UT-03 that was fueled by Chaffetz' dismissal of health-care costs last month. As some have noted, the Utah Governorship is opening up in 2020, and could be the prize Chaffetz now has his eye on. The Republican statesman from Utah made the announcement which shocked the political realm earlier today.
