SALT LAKE CITY — Mia Love officially announced Saturday at the Utah Republican Party’s organizing convention she will run for Utah’s 4th Congressional District seat against incumbent Jim Matheson, and she said she expects to win.
The Saratoga Springs Mayor and 2014 congressional candidate told attendees she wanted them to be the first to know that she was running again, according to a press release from her campaign.
“We have some unfinished business with Jim Matheson,” Love said.
Love thanked convention attendees for their support in last year’s campaign and asked them to join her again.
In 2012 Love’s campaign fell 768 votes short of winning, and Love said the 2012 effort has made her a stronger candidate.
“I am confident in our country,” Love said. “I am confident in our future. And I have great confidence in the people of Utah and America.”
