SALT LAKE CITY — Mia Love has a large money advantage over Republican and Democratic candidates in the race for Utah's 4th Congressional District seat.
Love pulled in $454,000 over the first three months of this year, largely from thousands of small donations as well as 23 political action committees. She spent more than $550,000 during that period and still has $631,970 in the bank, according to her latest Federal Election Commission report.
The former Saratoga Springs mayor, who narrowly lost to Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson in 2012, faces retired telecommunications executive Bob Fuehr for the GOP nomination. Matheson is not seeking re-election.
Fuehr raised only $17,400 in the first quarter but loaned his campaign $281,000. He spent $147,000 and has $56,300 on hand, according to his commission report.
Fuehr and Love will square off at the state Republican Party convention April 26.
Likely Democratic nominee Doug Owens reported $133,800 in contributions. He has $117,800 in the bank.
