All of that makes Mrs. Love stand out. None of that means she deserves our vote. Let's move past the superficial and get to political substance.

Salt Lake City, UT

Love has vowed to take the balanced-budget approach she has used in Saratoga Springs and apply it in Washington. To cut federal costs, she has advocated eliminating agencies that she considers bloated or ineffective, including the Departments of Energy and Education.
She favors giving states control of Medicare through block grants, privatizing more of the student loan market, and revamping Social Security to increase the retirement age and reindex the program for younger Americans.
This is the type of ideas the GOP wants. They are definitely not the same old, cookie-cutter plans proposed from either side of the aisle.
I wish her luck, and hope she gets the support she needs. I find it takes far more substance and courage to be a conservative woman because of pressure from groups like the National Organization of Women, who have a history of badgering and belittling women who don't walk in lock-step with them.

Republican Mia Love is absolutely correct on just about every issue, and boldly states her positions. She does not evade questions or try to weasel word things like most politicians hoping to fool as many people as possible.

Race, gender, age, sexual orientation, hair style, marital status, place of birth and all that other stuff is totally irrelevant for any candidate I consider. I want a candidate who will aggressively pursue the conservative agenda needed to save our country. Mia Love is that candidate and I am proud to contribute to her campaign, and eagerly await November when I can join my neighbors in adding some diversity in Congress. That is, a real conservative which is a badly underrepresented demographic! Only the left is fixated on racial and gender politics.

The liberal media will remain aghast at her conservative principles, but still marvel at her race and gender, and then try to diminish her as "unauthentic" because she understands that the liberal welfare plantation is the cause of, not the solution for, so many problems afflicting our nation.

Mia Love for Congress!

I really like Mia, I find her refreshing. I am very cautious about putting medicaid control into the state of Utah though. I look at what the state of Illinois has done to their Medicaid program and it is down right scary and could completely see the state of Utah doing the same. I don't see Mia supporting this, obviously, but the second you let the greedy state's take control of it, they will slice and dice it till it doesn't exist so they don't have to pay for it. I think what looks good on paper, and what happens in reality is two different things unfortunately.

But otherwise I think she is an outstanding lady, and so glad she defeated Wimmer!
