Thank you!Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Representative in the United States House of Representatives. Regardless, Chaffetz likely (correctly) assumes that America will be in ruins by 2028, giving him the flawless opportunity to swoop in, save the country, and finally get the recognition he so very much deserves.
His likely Democratic challenger next fall is political newcomer and family physician Dr. Kathryn Allen, who had an uphill battle in the red district, has already raised over $560,000 for her campaign, an nearly unprecedented sum for a non-incumbent congressional campaign 18 months away from election day.
