Damian W. Kidd — a Republican and attorney living in American Fork — is considering running next year against Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, arguing the congressman cares more about himself than voters.
"Chaffetz isn't concerned about Utah; he's concerned about Chaffetz," Kidd said in a statement announcing that he is testing the waters for a candidacy next year. "Chaffetz is not serving us, but is instead tactically navigating a political path for his own advancement."
He charged that Chaffetz loves TV cameras and the spotlight too much. "He has either become intoxicated by power or has nothing going in the private sector — or both."
