Chaffetz Staying Mum on 2012 Plans

Salt Lake Tribune Washington Correspondent Thomas Burr

(KCPW News) The potential Election 2012 battle between Utah Senator Orrin Hatch and Utah Representative Jason Chaffetz has just been taken to the next level, with anonymous insiders telling the Salt Lake Tribune that Chaffetz is in the race for sure against the senior senator, who was first elected 35 years ago. But Chaffetz is coyly sticking to his line that he’s only a “definite maybe.” Every Friday, we speak with Thomas Burr, Washington Correspondent for the Salt Lake Tribune and author of Political Cornflakes, a daily, online round-up of Utah politics. KCPW’s Jeff Robinson asked him why Chaffetz won’t announce his plans until after Labor Day.
