Saratoga Springs mayor and conservative favorite Mia Love, who unsuccessfully ran against Democratic Congressman Jim Matheson in Utah's 4th Congressional District in 2012, announced over the weekend that she will be running for Congress once again in 2014.
Having lost by fewer than 1,000 votes last time around, Love said at the Republican State Convention that she and the public "some unfinished business with Rep. Jim Matheson." She'll be running for the same seat.
Love also posted an announcement on Twitter:
Love explained that she made the decision to run for Congress only after speaking with voters, according to Desert News.
"I wanted to see if the momentum was there, if we could build upon what we had before," she said. "People are getting behind us and are more determined than ever to win this seat."
Speaking of the future, she declared: "I am confident in our country. I am confident in our future. And I have great confidence in the people of Utah and America."
