The Salt Lake Tribune reported that Allen's contributions spiked after Chaffetz appeared on national television and suggested low-income Americans would be able to afford health insurance if they chose to forgo new iPhones, a comment he later tried to walk back.
The Republican statesman from Utah made the announcement which shocked the political realm earlier today.
"It's a tough decision". "The more I'm here, the more I'm convinced I don't want to be in the United States Senate", Chaffetz said. Serving is an honor and a privilege that I have never taken for granted. Kathryn Allen, a physician and political newcomer running as a Democrat, has already raised almost $400,000 more than Mr. Chaffetz this year, The Salt Lake Tribune reported Sunday - most of it from donors outside of Utah.

Airlines would get an extra $200 and could then sell a walk-up fare to standby travelers, he said. Delta Air Lines is moving to make it easier to find customers willing to give up their seats.
"I'm trying to leave the door open for possibilities down the road", he said.
Jason Chaffetz was one of the primary fixtures during the congressional investigation into Hillary Clinton's private email address and home server hearings. I have no doubt the 3rd Congressional District will be represented by a Republican.
Chaffetz, 50, in his fifth term, says in a statement on Facebook that he has long advocated that public service should be for a limited time and not a lifetime or full career. I am healthy. I am confident I would continue to be re-elected by large margins.
In February, Chaffetz speculated that the protesters who became staples of his town hall events did so "to bully and intimidate" him. He told the Deseret News previous year he was interested in running for governor when Gov. Gary Herbert's term ends in 2020.
Trump U-turn: U.S. declines to brand China as currency manipulator officially
Many economists have argued that the Chinese currency, RMB, has been at equilibrium level in recent years. Economists say the USA currency could rise further as the Federal Reserve raises interest rates.
His likely Democratic challenger next fall is political newcomer and family physician Dr. Kathryn Allen, who had an uphill battle in the red district, has already raised over $560,000 for her campaign, an nearly unprecedented sum for a non-incumbent congressional campaign 18 months away from election day. Chaffetz won his first election in 2008 - a banner year for Democrats - with 66% of the vote, and hasn't been below 70% since.
He did send a letter to the Office of Government Ethics after White House adviser Kellyanne Conway endorsed Ivanka Trump's retail brand during a cable news interview.
Why are Democrats so happy to see Chaffetz go? During the election, he vacillated several times before backing President Trump.
"It's still somewhat surprising to me", Karpowitz said.
