Mia Love wants another shot at Utah Congressional seat
The Herald Journal, ^ | May 18, 2013

Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love has declared she wants another shot at the congressional seat occupied by Democrat Jim Matheson.

The announcement that she wanted a rematch came during an afternoon speech Saturday to several thousand delegates at the Utah Republican Party’s annual organizing convention.

“You and I have some unfinished business with Jim Matheson,” Love said during her speech, which was met with loud cheers and resounding applause.

I certainly hope so.

She is one of the best we got.

If you get knocked down, you just need to get right back up.

We need people like her running for seats in those Detroit districts. I don’t like playing the race card but its all the Detroit deck has right now.

It is 768 votes that she lost this election by. Personally, if I were her....I’d be crossing the state every six weeks, and making at least two major speeches every month. She needs independent votes.

Course, if the Tea Party folks had been approved for action and actively got more donations....the 2012 election results would have been different. I think by 2014, those Tea Party tax issues will be resolved.

I’m on board. One of the few campaigns I contributed to last time.

I have to give Fox News credit...they are the first to get these candidates on the air. I first saw Tim Scott on Neil Cavuto.

Good for her! I like the resilience and she’s starting off better known among conservatives nationwide.

What qualifies her to be the winner?

Gotta figure. Detroit is a city where whether a candidate is black enough among all black candidates is a legitimate campaign question.

Oddly enough, this guy (Charlie LeDuff) has managed to convince Detroiters that he's black and they love him. He's Creole BTW. However, he's not running for office.

Wow.

In 2013 America was still have the One Drop Rule.

I bet they would say Mia Love isn't black enough because she is married to a white guy.

I'd be the ole 1800's Demcorats are smiling in their graves. Still judging people by old racial codes.

I was at the GOP Convention and in my opinion, she gave one of the best speeches there.

Its why I wish we could get Ben Carson to run for one of those Detroit seats too. He’s already a local hero with schools named after him in Detroit.

He may not be perfect but he’s a hell of a step in the right direction for any of those districts.

You do realize that liberal blacks hate black conservatives even worse than they hate white conservatives, don't you? Black conservatives can't get elected in majority black cities, my friend.

Hell yeah, we all could use someone like him.

Hell, it is my opinion that Clarance Thomas, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell are literally the smartest men on the face of the earth.

They drive the Liberals up the wall.

We need people like Clarance Thomas, Walter Williams and Thomas Sowell and many more to start getting out to the inner cities and start enticing the people off the plantation.

Call it the “Runaway Slave Roadshow”. Get Herman Cain on stage to tell the people that he made 7 or 8 figures last year and not one of them will ever make that on welfare.
