Salt Lake City, UT – Jason Chaffetz surprised political observers as far away as Washington D.C. when he upset 6-term incumbent Congressman Chris Cannon for the republican nomination in Utah's 3rd District. Chaffetz was a former chief of staff for Governor Jon Huntsman. His mantra is fiscal discipline, limited government, accountability, and a strong national defense. KUER reporter Jenny Brundin spoke to Jason Chaffetz about his candidacy. They begin the interview by discussing the nation's current fiscal crisis. The interview was recorded before the weekend negotiations over bailout legislation.
