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.
The latest GOP national figure showed up in Utah Thursday night to support Saratoga Springs Mayor and congressional candidate Mia Love. Arizona Senator and former Presidential hopeful John McCain rallied with Love in West Valley City.
Close to three hundred people gathered in the amphitheater outside the Utah Cultural Celebration Center to see what McCain had to say about the GOP candidate in the state’s fourth congressional district. The Senator broke the ice with a few jokes about his failed presidential bid in 2008 and then offered his support to Love.
