SALT LAKE CITY -- Utah's freshman congressman says he's keeping the door open to a run for U.S. Senate.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, says he isn't planning on running against Sen. Bob Bennett, R-Utah, right now, but he says some voters and delegates within the Republican Party have encouraged him to.

Chaffetz says that doesn't surprise him. He tells the Deseret News people are frustrated by what's been happening at the nation's capital.

But in a Facebook posting Tuesday morning, Chaffetz says he's still 100 percent focused on being the best representative possible.
