Republican Sees Crowdfunded Challenge

Have you seen video of those raucous Town Hall meetings where citizens are now figuring out what a “repeal” of ObamaCare will do to them?

Representative Jason Chaffetz (R-UT) was the subject of one last weekend and as a result, out of the shadows came a test-the-waters crowdfunding campaign for a challenger, Kathryn Allen.

Dr. Allen, a physician, now is crowd raising funding for her 2018 primary race on CrowdPac, with $289,744 out of a $400,000 target pledged so far.
