Powerful House Oversight Chair Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) revealed in a Facebook post on Wednesday that he does not plan to seek reelection to Congress in 2018.
Chaffetz said he has "no ulterior motives" is healthy and confident he would re-elected.
For the time being, Chaffetz says, he will "return to the private sector".
Meanwhile, he was posturing to news outlets that he was still focused on running the Oversight Committee's investigations.
"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".
It's possible that Chaffetz doesn't see a place for himself under the Trump administration. It had been thought for some time that Chaffetz might run to fill Orrin Hatch's seat.
Additionally, Chaffetz said, "The president is exempt from the conflict of interest laws".
I'm not going to be here [in Washington, D.C.] forever. "But it's not required by law". Gov. Herbert said he would not call a special session to address that. Before last year's election, Chaffetz had vowed he would investigate Clinton "for years" if she won the presidency over Trump. And like many Republican members of Congress, Chaffetz faced a fiery crowd in a town hall in February.
Emirates Cuts Flights to U.S. Following Drop in Demand
The airline announced today that it is slashing more than half of its USA gateway routes of nonstop flights from Dubai . But the new rules seem to be eating into demand regardless, which is why the airline said it was cutting back .
While Chaffetz declined to investigate Trump, he did criticize a top Trump aide who promoted Ivanka Trump's fashion line during a cable TV appearance from the White House.
"That is absolutely wrong, wrong, wrong".
Rep. Jason Chaffetz will not seek re-election in 2018, two sources who have been informed of his decision tell BuzzFeed News. "Undoubtedly, he will appreciate being able to spend more time here in the great state of Utah". Chaffetz proudly refused to use campaign funds to feed state delegates, as is traditional in the process of currying favor.
After House Speaker John Boehner abruptly resigned in the fall of 2015, Chaffetz mounted a bid for speaker of the House against Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, but his effort failed to gain major traction. The Utah lawmaker earned a bachelor's degree in communications from Brigham Young University and played football at the school.
Chaffetz has been viewed by Democrats as especially partisan.
Chaffetz wrote on his Facebook page that he won't be a candidate for any political office in 2018. Many of you have heard me advocate, "Get in, serve, and get out".
Chris Karpowitz, co-director at Brigham Young University's Center for the Study of Elections and Democracy, said Chaffetz's decision to bow out is somewhat surprising but eases the path for a governor's race.
