Today as we are lectured that the GOP is not inclusive enough, Mia Love, the Black sitting Mayor in the town of Saratoga Springs, Utah has lost her bid for the U.S. House to incumbent Democrat Jim Matheson. Utah’s 2nd District is the most GOP-leaning district in the country to be represented by a Democrat. Matheson is the only Democrat in Utah’s delegation of six. He won with 49.3% of votes over Love’s 48.1%.
Love, who is married to a White man and is a Mormon convert, was/is a “rising star” in the GOP. We haven’t heard the last of Mia Love who is an inspiring, passionate speaker who has proven to be a fiscal leader in her community.
