Former mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, Mia Love crushed her primary competitor on Saturday in a bid to become the Republican congressional nominee to replace retiring Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson. Love handily defeated her primary opponent Bob Feuhr with more than 78 percent of the vote.
In 2012, Mia Love ran against Matheson but lost by less than 800 votes.
In a statement, National Republican Congressional Committee chairman Greg Walden expressed confidence that the GOP will pick up the seat and “there is no better candidate to lead the charge than Mia Love.”
Experts are already claiming victory for Love who if successful in November, will also make history as the first black female Republican elected to Congress. Congresswoman Mia Love could single-handedly dismantle the liberal media orthodoxy that suggests that “Republicans Have A Race Problem.”
Some in the media, motivated by ideology or apathy, are quick to suggest that the Republican party’s voter base is steadily becoming older and whiter. Those same “Journalists” conveniently overlook national efforts on the part of the GOP to compete for the minority vote. After I did some digging, I wasn’t surprised to find that only a handful of mainstream media outlets reported on stories like the eleven black Republicans running for Congress in Alabama. One would think that the media that calls Republicans the “White Party,” would report on a record number of black candidates running for federal office in a former Confederate state.
Mia Love, like all Republicans just want a better America for all. Republican voters judge their representatives by the content of their character, while liberals in the media and beyond are busy focusing on skin color.
