Utah Congressman Jason Chaffetz has announced he will not seek reelection in 2018.
Not only will the congressman not seek reelection, Chaffetz says he will not run for any public office in 2018. The announcement made by the congressman on his personal Facebook page says he has been a longtime proponent of limited service, not lifetime public service. Chaffetz says he may run for office again but not in 2018. No reason other than a personal decision to return to the private sector was given, Chaffetz says he is in good health and confident he could have won reelection easily as he has in the past.
