I'm voting for Mia Love in the morning at the early voting booth. We need a new voice and face in Congress. Utah needs a least one woman in Congress. Mia Love is that women. it is her time.

Does it really matter if Romney is not seen on the ad. Romney obviously supports her, heck she spoke at the Republican GOP Convention, I think they have a tie together. must be a slow day for news.

Matheson sounds a bit scared, with his whiny rants and reasons for Boehner and other officials coming to Utah. He talks about riding the coattails of Romney, are you upset that you have no coattails to ride on Mr. Matheson, Obama doesn't give you much to run on despite the fact that you have supported him more often than not and voted for Obama Care. I know politicians can't say it so I will. Jim Matheson is a flat out liar when it comes to his agenda and policies he supports. He doesn't do what Utah wants, he is just like Obama and uses his own agenda with Utah's money.

Matheson tries to imply that voting for certain budget things that he made that a reality at the level it was implied.

He has not had to make the executive decisions that Mia Love has had to do as a mayor and even influence at the City Council level.

He does political advertising in a way that would imply he is the man in charge of making decisions. There are 3 Congressmen for Utah and will be 4 Representatives for Utah after the election.

He chose to go to this District and see if he could make it. By the way he has done advertising at the late moment, he is grasping at straws. He had 10 years of being in the same district due to every ten years the census changing his district through the legislature, but he fell into the Obama - Pelosi tricks of two years and then the Tea Party kicked in to change that for Pelosi. He made his decision in 2010 to support this President's and his leader Pelosi. He played the game for 12 years but Utahns need someone that represents their beliefs and principles. I know his Mom thinks he is good.

All the negative ads coming from the Mia Love campaign come off as desperate.

All of the negative ads coming from the Matheson campaign come off as desperate.

Even more so since he is an incumbent.

I love that Matheson's camp is constantly try to portray Mia Love as some huge tax-hiker. She took over as mayor of one of the fastest growing cities in Utah, and it was a complete mess politically until she helped clean things up. Growing cities do tend to have increasing budgets. On the plus side, pretty much every growing city in Utah knows how to balance its budget in the near term, unlike the US Congress that Matheson has been a part of for the last decade, and the president that Matheson has been supporting for the past 4 years. I'll be voting for Mia Love.
