Jason Chaffetz on Principles & Values
2012 Senate Challenger; Republicam House member (UT-3)
With an army of 1,000 grass-roots volunteers, good old-fashioned shoe leather, and despite being outspent by over $600,000, Jason defeated the Republican incumbent by 20 percent in the June 24, 2008 primary election. He won the general election by 37 points.
Congressman Chaffetz is working hard to represent Utah to Washington, not Washington to Utah. He is focused on returning the federal government back to its proper role, and reigning in the out of control spending and power grabs by lawmakers and special interests.
Jason ran a well-organized campaign for John Huntsman, Jr. which resulted in victory. He then worked for another year as Huntsman's Chief of Staff. In 2005 Jason rejoined the private sector managing his own company, Maxtera Utah, a corporate communications and marketing firm.
Now Congressman Jason Chaffetz represents the people of Utah's 3rd Congressional District. He is energized and dedicated to fighting for what is right for Utah, and for the United States of America.
The new generation of pro-market, small government leaders filled such a need that in October 2007, Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard profiled Eric Cantor, Paul Ryan, and Kevin McCarthy and christened them the "young guns."
Kevin approached Eric & Paul about the idea of traveling together, as "Young Guns", to visit Republican candidates interested in a new approach for the party.
What began as an informal way to support like-minded candidates became a more formal structure. Once the three Representatives had studied the candidate and given their support to become a Young Gun, they committed to providing financial support through their campaign committees.
Existing House Republicans were approached with a simple pitch: Are we willing to help ourselves by being proactive and going on the offense to change this House? Dozens of our House Republican colleagues joined the Young Gun effort as one of the many signs that the Republican Party had shifted.
The Tea Party movement is a populist conservative social movement in the United States that emerged in 2009 through a series of locally and nationally coordinated protests. The protests were partially in response to several Federal laws: the stimulus package; te healthcare bill; and the TARP bailouts. The name "Tea Party" refers to the Boston Tea Party of 1773, the source of the phrase, "No Taxation Without Representation."
