Haitian Daughter Tea Party Favorite Grabs UT Congressional Nomination

Mia Love, the 37-year-old daughter of Haitian immigrants, has nabbed the Utah GOP nomination for a new Congressional seat. As John Fund reports, “Utah selects its candidates at party conventions with primaries only occurring if no one wins 60 percent or more of delegates. Love won the nomination on the final ballot when she beat former state legislator Carl Wimmer with 70 percent of the vote.”

 

 

Love is heavily conservative, and she’s perfectly willing to take on the liberal elite so threatened by her very existence. Daily Kos recently called her “one of only two African-Americans living in Utah not currently playing for the Jazz.” They also called her a “token black Republican.”

 

 

Love isn’t taking that nonsense, though. “Game On,” she says. “I had a front-row seat for two people living the American dream,” she said at the Conservative Political Action Conference. “I will not stand by as we leave our children a legacy of debt and dependency.” Love is Mormon, married with three children; she’s a graduate of University of Hartford with a degree in fine arts.
