Rep. Jason Chaffetz plots run for House speaker

Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) may be the latest candidate vying to replace John Boehner as House speaker, multiple sources told Politico. Chaffetz, the chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, called out current favorite for House speaker and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) for his comments applauding the Benghazi oversight committee for successfully tarnishing Hillary Clinton's reputation.

McCarthy is still seen as the favorite to replace Boehner when he steps down at the end of October.
