Utah House Race Will Get Lots of GOP Love

Republicans are excited about Mia Love’s prospects in Utah’s 4th district.

Im a six-generation Utahn, and I feel like I know folks here really well, the Blue Dog Democrat said by phone Monday. I think they have frustration with politics today because of all the polarization and partisanship and the bickering. Theyre looking for something different, and thats me. I dont just say it, Ive done it.

Matheson said Love has taken some positions that are way out there, and state Democratic Party Chairman Jim Dabakis called Love an ideological extremist with a moderate costume. Though she doesnt have a record in the state capital, Democrats will no doubt highlight some of her votes on the city council over the next six months.

For now, Love has the advantage of focusing on Matheson rather than spending the next two months running a district-wide primary campaign.

My guess is shell be in Washington before too long raising some money, Hartley said.
