Chaffetz announces he will not seek re-election

As the chairman of the United States House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, Chaffetz was widely expected to lead investigations into Trump's conflicts of interest with a similar vigor to his pursuit of investigations into former president Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.

Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) announced he will not seek re-election to the House when his term ends in 2018, news that evidently has McMullin licking his chops, reports the Independent Journal Review (IJR). "In the meantime, I still have a job to do and I have no plans to take my foot off the gas".

He was met by frequent, deafening boos at a February town hall as constituents grilled him on everything from investigating Trump's tax returns to Planned Parenthood.

That decision is a reflection of the current state of our politics - particularly on the Republican side. There's nearly no evidence that Democrats can get competitive in this deep-red district. Chaffetz won the Utah House seat after defeating fellow Republican Chris Cannon in a primary run-off election.

The smartphone is also splash-resistant, which means it should easily handle the occasional spill without taking any damage. Instead, there's a nice-but-standard-looking glass and metal frame, with a familiar 5.15-inch, 1080p display .

Republicans have a deep bench of talented candidates in Utah who are more than up to this challenge.

Don't be surprised if we see Chaffetz hang up his cleats sometime in the next few months because the 2020 governor's race starts today.
