Exceptions to the rule » I noted in Wednesday’s column that Republican congressional candidate Mia Love listed Gov. Gary Herbert, Sens. Mike Lee and Orrin Hatch and Congressmen Chris Stewart and Rob Bishop as the honorary co-chairmen of an upcoming fundraising event, with the glaring omission of Rep. Jason Chaffetz.
And I quoted Chaffetz as telling me that as a rule he doesn’t endorse candidates who may have challenges within the party until they secure the nomination.
Except for that time he endorsed Mitt Romney over other Republican presidential candidates, including his one-time boss, former Utah Gov. Jon Huntsman Jr.
