Mia Love Announces 2014 House Bid

She has been named one of “Ten Republicans to Follow on Twitter,” she was a rockstar at the 2012 Republican National Convention — and now she is back for another crack at a House seat.

Mia Love, currently the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, has officially announced her candidacy for Utah’s fourth congressional district, setting up a rematch against Representative Jim Matheson, who defeated Love last November by just 768 votes out of 245,277 cast.

Love is a 37-year-old wife and mother of three, a Brooklyn native born of Haitian immigrants, and a convert to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She served six years on Saratoga Springs’s city council before being elected mayor. She is the first black female mayor in Utah’s history.

Kill Chic

We live in a society in which gratuitous violence is the trademark of video games, movies, and popular music. Kill this, shoot that in repugnant detail becomes a race to the visual and spoken bottom.
