Utah-04 2012 Tag

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...

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. But after six...

Mia Love is in a tight race in Utah-04 against Democratic incumbent Jim Matheson. 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...

October has been a month full of good news for Mia Love. The Operation Counterweight member running for Congress in Utah's newly created 4th Congressional District has faced an uphill battle since she entered the race. She began her campaign in the Republican primary with little...

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...

The Love Bomb now has surpassed $200,000. This provides an enormous boost to Mia Love's campaign as it provides cash to fund the type of local effort that outside groups cannot by law do.  It still leaves her with only half the cash on hand as Democrat Jim...

The line up is packed tonight, including Mia Love, who just finished her speech: If you haven't contributed to her Money Bomb, what are you waiting for? Need more motivation, read what some smug creep at The Nation says about people like Mia, RNC Schedule: Tokenism Extraordinaire.  Tokens? People...

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...

Not a great day. Someone I know, an indefatigable blogger, decided to go to bed early. Don't focus on the bad.  Think about the great candidates we have like Mia B. Love, who just rolled out this video: Remember Operation Counterweight. Do I have to come over and slap...

Mia B. Love appeared on MSNBC today, and it was a pretty fair segment. As noted here before, while Jim Matheson is beatable, it's not going to be easy.  Matheson falsely portrays himself as a moderate. That "outside money" rolling in mentioned at the end will not...

I guess Democratic Congressman Jim Matheson running against Mia Love in the new Utah-04 district is a moderate compared to Nancy Pelosi.  His claim to moderation is that on a small number of key votes he has voted against his party, but not when his vote mattered. Matheson...

In previous posts we have noted that Mia B. Love will receive financial support from various Republican groups in her race against incumbent Democrat Jim Matheson. That led me and many readers to believe that Love is all set for money.  But that is a misunderstanding.  The...
