Mia B. Love will be speaking at the RNC tonight with the theme “The America I Know.”
As you know from prior coverage here, she’s in a tough fight in the newly formed and heavily Republican Utah-04 district against incumbent Jim Matheson, who has family name recognition (his father was a former Governor) and a knack for strategically voting against his party when convenient and when his vote is not needed in order to portray himself as a moderate on TV.
The latest public polling, which is two months old, shows Matheson with a strong lead, but that will change as Love gains more name recognition and hits the airwaves both on her own and with help from Republican-aligned groups.
This race has been our focus since early January when Love was barely known and given close to zero chance of winning the primary. She came on strong as people got to know her and won an overwhelming majority of the vote at the convention.
Now it’s time to give her some monetary help, which she needs right now. While Love will get advertising help from outside groups (as will Matheson), that help cannot fund her campaign. This race is one of our 10 Operation Counterweight races.
In conjunction with her speech tonight, Love has launched a money bomb, aptly named Love Bomb!
