Chaffetz won’t run for reelection

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) will not seek reelection in 2018, he announced in a Facebook post Wednesday morning.

“After long consultation with my family and prayerful consideration, I have decided I will not be a candidate for any office in 2018,” the House Oversight Committee chairman said.

Chaffetz, 50, had been floated as a potential candidate for Senate or Utah governor, but he denied any interest in running for anything in 2018. However, he noted that he “may run again for public office, but not in 2018.”
Sen. Orrin Hatch’s (R-Utah) seat is up in 2018, while Utah Gov. Gary Herbert’s (R) seat is up in 2020.

“For those that would speculate otherwise, let me be clear that I have no ulterior motives. I am healthy. I am confident I would continue to be re-elected by large margins. I have the full support of Speaker Ryan to continue as Chairman of the Oversight and Government Reform Committee. That said, I have made a personal decision to return to the private sector,” Chaffetz said.

Even everyone not used to this, can make $89/per h easily and the earnings can go even higher over time… This is how i started

    Maybe he’s sick of all the corruptness that goes on in the Political world! I had a friend years ago that always wanted to be a cop, he went to school and his training and finished in the top of his class! After about 4 years he quite, left on a friday and never went back! I met him one night at a Huddle house and we had supper together and a long talk! His reason for leaving his dream job was because of Corruptness, he said it made him sick at his stomach and couldn’t take it anymore, and what made it worst was most in there seem to really enjoy at times destroying peoples lives! He never felt the same for a cop again, and to top it off, hey called him a bad cop for leaving!! How sick!!
