It has been a long time since we wrote about Mia B. Love, running for Congress in Utah-04.

Matheson Voted With Obama screen cap

Jim Matheson has been the Harry Houdini of modern politics, a Democrat surviving in a heavily Republican Utah district which became even more Republican after the 2010 redistricting.

But he still beat Mia Love in 2012. By a few hundred votes. In Utah. With Romney at the top of the ticket.

Mia Love rocketed to stardom in 2012.

With the help of the conservative blogosphere, including many of the larger blogs like Hot Air and Instapundit,...

I certainly don’t want to get overly confident, but this is very good news, via The Salt Lake Tribune:

For 12 years, Jim Matheson has been a political escape artist, managing to wiggle free from every trap the Utah Republicans have thrown his way.

While recent polling had Love slightly ahead, the race is expected to be close.

As a Democrat in a majority Republican district, Matheson tries to keep quiet about his support of Obama.  Matheson needs a lot of voters to...

One of the biggest electoral scams in the country is being run by Jim Matheson in Utah-04 against Mia B. Love.

As detailed here before, Matheson plays a Democratic moderate on TV, and strategically votes against his party on high profile votes when his vote doesn’t matter either because (as under Speaker...
