Chaffetz Inching Toward Challenging Hatch

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) is moving closer to challenging Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) for the GOP nomination. This is what he told the Salt Lake Tribune:

Chaffetz said Tuesday that he’s not making any official announcement yet, but he is moving toward a Hatch challenge.

“I have an increasing clarity,” Chaffetz said. “Until I walk up to the microphone to make an announcement, it’s not official. But it’s no secret I’ve been thinking about this and I’ve been gravitating in that direction.”

In preparation for a possible race with Chaffetz, Hatch has cast surprising votes like his opposition to Sonia Sotomayor and his support for the Rand Paul budget.
