Last January 9th I called Mia Love The Ideal Republican Candidate for Congress. I said then,
In the state of Utah there is a person who will run for Congress from its newly created 4th district that just might be the ideal Republican. This person believes strongly in individual responsibility and freedom. In order to balance the budget while cutting taxes, the candidate would start by abolishing the Department of Education and the Department of Energy, delegating their responsibilities to the states. Slashing regulations and opening up federal land to energy drilling would be a priority. The American-born candidate comes from immigrant parents who fled the ructions of their native land with $10 in their pocket, settling in America and making a life for themselves. “I had a front-row seat for two people living the American dream,” she said. “I will not stand by as we leave our children a legacy of debt and dependency.”
Who is this person? Meet Mia B. Love who, if elected, will be the first Black Republican woman in the United States House of Representatives.
Here she is on Fox and Friends yesterday. She has the endorsement of John McCain and John Boehner. That’s interesting because if I was right about her stance last January those two do not share her political goals and I suspect gave her their endorsement hoping to get some race cred. On the other hand, she is running against a liberal Democrat incumbent and any GOP politician with an ounce of conservative blood would endorse her.
