Well, the congressional races in my home state just got a whole lot more interesting.
Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) just announced via Facebook that he will not seek re-election in 2018 –
I’m actually kind of disappointed by this news. Chaffetz has been an awesome representative and he’s gone after some pretty big reforms as part of the House Oversight Committee. I’ve always liked him and thought he did fantastic in Congress. Though I can imagine that after so long in politics, he would want to do something else.
Whoever replaces him has some big shoes to fill. That’s all I have to say.
