But there are other factors worth examining in considering the lawmaker's decision to exit congressional life this year.
Chaffetz claimed he intends to return to the private sector in the announcement, but there are two key races coming up in Utah that could tempt the nationally-known Republican.
Chaffetz said he announced now so that another candidate could rise in the 3rd Congressional District.
Why are Democrats so happy to see Chaffetz go? He has simply run out of gas for the level of commitment necessary to do the job well, and wants to return to the private sector to have more time for his family. Last year, the heavily Republican district elected Chaffetz over Democratic challenger Stephen Tryon by more than 40 percentage points. "I am confident I would continue to be re-elected by large margins", he said in a statement (and a Trumpian one at that, to declare that you're not running, but would have won if you had).

"More medically trained people are needed in government. We can't investigate everything all the time".
Trump simply is not popular in Utah.
Unlike Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price's Atlanta-area seat, Chaffetz's district isn't going to suddenly be competitive for Democrats.
State Rep. Dan McCay, R-Riverton, said he's looking at "the opportunity" of launching a bid."Chaffetz [is] stepping back and his timing is ideal", McCay said, noting that it allows ample time for a "full field" of candidates to file. And maybe he knows something we don't.
