Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04) targeted with vicious racist hate mail.
Come, let me reveal a deep, dark secret of the Mia Love campaign: she’s black. Did you care? Can’t say that I care much, either: what I care about is whether she has the resources and ability to defeat Jim Matheson in this year’s UT-04 Congressional race. The possibility is tantalizingly there: and apparently it’s worrying Utahn Democrats. Which is fine… except when Utahn Democrats | Read More »
NRCC’s New Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04) ad: “This is Our America.”
The NRCC has a new campaign ad out for Mia Love, Republican candidate for Utah’s Fourth District: It’s part of the NRCC’s Our America campaign (you can see the trailer for said campaign here), and we’re getting it to our readers hot off of the presses, as it were. Mia, of course, should be familiar to RedState readers (here and here for interviews, and here | Read More »
Pale Horse, Puny Rider
MSNBC and the rest of hopelessly leftist media lost something when they fired Keith Olbermann. There were moments such as the night Keith covered Scott Brown’s victory over Martha Coakley that I was convinced it was excellent self-parody. John Stewart can do funny artificial news but Keith just went out and killed it!*
So watching the likes of Chris Matthews, Juan Williams and Chuck Todd try and fill the void is sort of akin to watching AA Ball after an evening of seeing the Yanks play live. But the effort and determination to demonize the GOP is still there! You and 99% of the rest of America probably aren’t watching, but these guys know exactly which lines The Minister of Propaganda want them to trumpet. Only the idiots who vandalized Mia Love’s Wikipedia page have played the Race-Card in a more laughable fashion.

RS Interview: Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04).
The new Fourth Congressional District in Utah is going to be an interesting battleground: the very, very lonely Democratic incumbent Jim Matheson transferred over to it with what could cruelly, yet fairly, be described as ‘extreme haste.’ Or ‘pure panic.’ Meanwhile, the GOP side had a pretty spirited primary season that eventually resulted in Saratoga Springs mayor Mia Love getting the nod. You may remember | Read More »
Mia Love’s (R CAND, UT-04) Saturday convention speech.
Below is the speech that Mia Love made Saturday, prior to winning the Republican nomination for UT-04 with 70% of the delegate vote. It’s pretty affirmative stuff: it highlights Mia’s life experience as the daughter of immigrants, affirms her American and Utahn values… and rips into Jim Matheson for his refusal to stand up for either, when in the clutch. Well worth watching.
Another Reason to Support Carl Wimmer
Carl Wimmer is running for Congress in Utah and I’m supporting him. He’s got the support of most major conservative groups out there, including Club for Growth. With that much support, it is typical that his opponents are out savaging him. In true liberal fashion, his opponents are attacking the former police officer and landscape company owner because he went to community college. Seriously. Well, | Read More »
RS at CPAC: Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04 PRI).
We’ve spoken before: Mia is the mayor of Saratoga Springs in the new UT-04 district, and if she wins the primary she hopes to beat Jim Matheson in the general. We spoke for a few minutes at CPAC: Mia’s site is here. I don’t often say this, but if I lived in this district I’d be voting for her. Which is no reflection on the | Read More »
RS Interview: Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04 PRI).
You may remember her from last week: Mia is the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, and is now running for the new district created for Utah as a result of the last census. We had the opportunity to talk about the details of the district, plus her thoughts about the best way to represent it: Mia’s site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost)
Introduction to Mia Love (R-CAND, UT-04 PRIMARY)
Mia Love is the current Republican mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah: she kicked off her bid today to be the Republican candidate for Utah’s new Fourth Congressional district. Mia’s running on basic small-government principles, focusing on government being often the problem, and not the solution, to our problems. She’s got a fairly crowded primary to deal with, and will be facing a transplanted Jim Matheson | Read More »
