Utah Rep. Jason Chaffetz is running for speaker of the House.
Chaffetz made his announcement in a letter, saying more than 50 other representatives won't support current party leadership (a.k.a. John Boehner's right-hand man Kevin McCarthy) when they vote Thursday night. (Video via MSNBC)
While it's something of a long shot, Chaffetz's bid highlights the divide within the GOP between the establishment and hard-line conservatives. (Video via C-SPAN)
