Today, Rep. Jason Chaffetz, House Oversight Committee chair (and noted serial Hillary Clinton/Benghazi investigation-launcher), announced he won't run for re-election in 2018, leaving his House seat up for grabs.
Utah Republican Congressman Jason Chaffetz announced Wednesday he will not seek re-election in 2018.
In a statement on Facebook, Chaffetz noted that he has long advocated that public service should be for a limited time. "After more than 1,500 nights away from home, it is time".
Reaction to Rep. Jason Chaffetz's unexpected decision Wednesday to not run for re-election in 2018 rolled in from both sides of the political aisle Wednesday.
Chaffetz said he has "no ulterior motives" is healthy and confident he would re-elected.
Since GOP leaders hold the most sway on the House Steering Committee, which determines lawmaker committee assignments, it could be tough for Jordan to win the Oversight gavel, one of the most high-profile chairmanships in Congress. Kidd said he respects Chaffetz's decision to honor his promise of not being a career politician and he wishes him well with his future endeavors. "I trust you to find the best person to serve", Chaffetz wrote.

But if you don't file anything by the deadline, the penalty is five percent for each month or part of a month after the due date. If you are single, and they go after your pay, you could be left with just $201 a week for living expenses, McKenzie said.
Chaffetz is only in his second term as chairman of that powerful entity, meaning that reelection would likely have seen him holding the Oversight gavel until 2020.
"He's been toying with this idea after residents have come to him ask him to run and I would be lying to you if I told you he wasn't looking at it", said Corey Norman, a spokesman for the mayor. Last year, he told the Deseret News he would "take a serious, serious" look at a gubernatorial bid in Utah once his term as chairman of the House's primary investigative committee had expired. "I'm happy he'll be able to spend more time with his family, which I feel is really important". At a town hall in February, Chaffetz was essentially booed for an hour straight, and a new billboard in his hometown of Provo questions the congressman's reluctance to investigate Russia's meddling in US elections.

Chaffetz supporters, however, shouldn't fret; his cot might be on the move to the Utah State Capitol.

Here's how she phrases it: "Sources say there is kompromat on Jason Chaffetzl that this is why he turned and that Federal Bureau of Investigation know it" (link).
"We have been approached by several candidates interested in taking on the [3rd Congressional District], but none as far into their campaign as Kathie Allen", she said. Mr. Chaffetz had been one of the first lawmakers to raise questions about the Obama administration's role in Benghazi, traveling to Libya less than a month after the attacks to evaluate security standards.
