Chaffetz To Challenge McCarthy For Speaker

There could be a race after all, when it comes to who the next Speaker of the House will be. Rep. Jason Chaffetz has announced that he will challenge the presumed favorite, Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

Does Chaffetz have a shot. Interestingly, Chaffetz was critical of McCarthy late last week, annoyed that he characterized his Benghazi committee as politically motivated. Also, the President’s Friday afternoon news conference.

The major takeaway appears to have been his comment on Russia and Syria, saying that Putin is getting himself into quite the quagmire.
