Mia Love Officially Running for Utah's 4th Congressional District Again

May 18, 2013

Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love officially declared Saturday that she will run again for the congressional seat occupied by Democrat Jim Matheson. Love's announcement came during a speech to several thousand delegates at the Utah Republican Party's annual organizing convention.

“You and I have some unfinished business with Jim Matheson. So combining my confidence in you delegates, with the inspiration you’ve given back to me, we are stronger than ever, and I am certain, we will win,” said Love to applause.

Last November, Love narrowly lost to Matheson in what was one of the most expensive races in Utah history. Love had previously said she was seriously considering another run and had filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission but stopped short of formally declaring she was jumping into the 2014 race.
