Former pres­id­en­tial can­did­ate Evan McMul­lin “says he may mount a 2018 chal­lenge against either” Sen. Or­rin Hatch (R) or Rep. Jason Chaf­fetz (R-03).

McMul­lin: “It is pos­sible that I will chal­lenge Chaf­fetz or Sen­at­or Hatch, but there are a lot of factors that go in­to that de­cision. One of the primary factors is what the people of Utah want.”

McMul­lin ad­ded, “he prob­ably will run for elec­ted of­fice again, but not ne­ces­sar­ily next year.”

“It is likely that I will seek pub­lic of­fice again,” he said. “That might be in 2018 or it might be some­time down the road, per­haps very far down the road.” (The Hill)
