Our take: Saratoga Springs mayor Mia Love is gaining momentum in her race to Congress. Not only would she help Republicans keep control of the House, but she would become the first black Republican woman to serve in Congress.
SALT LAKE CITY — Other than her conservatism, there is little about Mia Love that doesnt stand out in Utah. She is a black Republican, a 36-year-old mother of three, a fitness instructor and mayor of a growing town.
Now, her congressional race against a popular incumbent whom Republicans have struggled to defeat has made Love a minor celebrity among GOP stalwarts.
