Tea Party Group Backing Love

posted on May 2, 2012

Last week, FreedomWorks For America endorsed Mia Love, the Republican candidate for Utah’s 4th congressional district. The daughter of Haitian immigrants and a Mormon convert, Love is running to unseat the Democratic incumbent, Jim Mattheson. Love’s unique background and conservative bonafides have made her a favorite of the Tea Party wing of the GOP. Russ Walker, National Political Director for FreedomWorks for America, says, “Mia will represent the best interests of Utah taxpayers in Congress, strengthening the Republican majority in the House, and expanding the coalition of fiscal conservatives within it.” If she is elected, Love, who is currently the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, will become the nation’s first black Republican congresswoman.
