House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz said Wednesday he will not run for reelection when his current term concludes at the end of 2018.
Chaffetz, who has served several terms in Congress, said he chose to announce his decision now to give other candidates the proper time period to build a successful campaign.
According to a statement Chaffetz, a Republican representing Utah's 3rd Congressional District, released on Facebook, he said, "it is time", citing his stance of serving only as long as one needs to. Many of you have heard me advocate, "Get in, serve, and get out".
Chaffetz left open the possibility that he "may run again for public office, but not in 2018". I would take a serious, serious look at running for governor.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, made a surprising announcement Wednesday saying he would not be running for re-election next year.

"I have no ulterior motives".
Cox, a resident of the part of Sanpete County that falls in the 4th Congressional District, also declined to commit to a gubernatorial run - a bid Chaffetz hasn't ruled out either.
"I think if I wanted to run, I would be very competitive", Chaffetz said Wednesday afternoon in an interview with Neil Cavuto on Fox News.
The job also allowed him to annoy residents of Washington, D.C., a predominantly Democratic jurisdiction, often meddling in District affairs.
In February, he was drowned out by boos at a town hall meeting, where constituents shouted, " Do your job! ". Chaffetz said he announced now so that another candidate could rise in the 3rd Congressional District.
