Republican star Mia Love gets second chance to make political history

Republican U.S. congressional candidate Love addresses the second session of the Republican National Convention in TampaBy Jennifer Dobner SALT LAKE CITY (Reuters) – Utah’s Mia Love, a Republican darling who could become the first conservative black woman elected to U.S. Congress, is getting a second, and likely better, chance to make history after narrowly losing to a popular incumbent Democrat in 2012. The seat became available when Jim Matheson retired after seven terms in Congress as the heavily conservative state’s lone Democrat in Washington. If Love wins this time, she would become an unlikely champion in Washington of staunchly conservative views – limited government, fiscal discipline and state’s rights. He ran toward a seemingly impossible challenge,” Love said during a testy debate this week with her opponent, Doug Owens, a Democrat and first-time candidate.
