With the entire State being the loser in this.

Perhaps a little chat with Mr. Romney might be helpful.

A Love victory? What a disaster THAT would be, both for the state and the country.

Mia Love labeled 'surefire winner' by Roll Call blogger

=========

In other news --
Utah is labeled 'surefire looser' by the rest of the Nation.

I suspect that Mia Love is truly a surefire winner in the upcoming election. This saddens me a great deal.

Glad to read the left is going to be mad if Love wins. Just remember folks, if the Democrat wins, he will be powerless to do anything in the dominent Republican Congress, unless he works with the Republicans, which I suppose is something the Democrats don't want. So, he will be nothing but be a seat filler for at least 2 years. Love, if elected, will have a voice at the table.

@happy2bhere. There will still be Democrat president and even if the republicans win more seats in the senate it will not be a super majority.

So whether Love wins or a democrat is a moot point.

Wonderful, Mia Love has been a great mayor of Saratoga Springs and will be a great representative!

I, certainly, hope so!

Why is a Mia Love victory a disaster. I might not agree with everything she says but then that's the case with everyone else. The libertarian in me likes her limited government approach in economics and she does not seem to want to impose her moral beliefs on others. So unless you're for an all-knowing, all-powerful government what's not to like?

Mia Love will be a breath of fresh air in Washington. She is bright, level-headed and intelligent.

Please tell me one good thing that Jim Matheson did in Washington for the country? He voted continuously with the democratic party and we have the great piece of ... that is the Obama Care.
Mia Love is at least consistent with small government and has not stabbed us in back like the democratics have

"...Love, if elected, will have a voice at the table...".

If you're not at the table, you're on the menu.

Sadly, Utah is simply on the menu.

Vote Republican.

Continue to function as a Republican ATM.

Utah will remain a useful Republican tool as long as Utah Republicans dutifully serve those two roles.

If love wins it is because Utahns agree with her over her opponent. Therefore the voters do win!

Mia will represent her district and Utah well. She will be a voice of reason and conservative values that we need more of in Congress. And provide a positive role model for young people of color across our nation.

What does it matter what a Washington DC blogger thinks about this race? Is it that significant and newsworthy? Here's another question....would the DN publish an opinion who predicted the opposite? If Doug Owens would be a "surefire" winner according to some blogger in the New York Times? I doubt it. That would be counter-productive the DN's conservative, right-wing leaning agenda. And that folks isn't "fair and balanced" reporting. Ultimately, as Owens indicated, the people of Utah will decide this race. Personally, we don't need another representative from Utah who is uncompromising, extreme right-wing, and who ultimately is in it not for the people of Utah, but for notoriety. Much like Chaffetz, Mia Love is interested is seeing her name and picture in the paper.

I've always been puzzled by Mia. Her own family came here from Haiti on a tourist visa, and her birth enabled them to stay in the USA. She herself is one of the "anchor babies" the Right Wing so despises. Why then does she make common cause with the Right Wingers who are so hard on other refugees who risk everything for the chance at a better life in the USA? Isn't that just a little ironic?
