Ludmya Bourdeau Love, known as Mia Love (born December 6. 1975), is the Republican U.S. Representative for Utah's 4th congressional district. In 2012, she lost a bid for the House to the incumbent Democrat Jim Matheson. Two years later when Matheson stepped down, she won the seat by defeating the Democrat Doug Owens, son of former U.S. Representative Wayne Owens. In 2016, Love won a rematch against Owens.

Early life

Love was born in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated from the University of Hartford in the capital city of Hartford, Connecticut. In 1998, Love moved to Utah. A Mormon, she is married with three children. She began in politics as a city councilwoman. In 2010, she was elected as only the third mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah.[1]

U.S. House of Representatives

In 2012 race for Congress, Love received endorsements from such Republican leaders as Eric Cantor (the since toppled House Majority Leader), Paul Ryan, the 2012 vice-presidential nominee, and Kevin McCarthy of California, who succeeded Cantor in 2014 as House Majority Leader.

Though she ran as an insurgent conservative, Love is now considered part of the Moderate Republican establishment on some issues, as she joined 33 other House Republicans calling to maintain DACA amnesty before the end of 2017.[2]

After Love lost the 2018 race,[3] Will Hurd of Texas' 23rd congressional district is the only African-American Republican currently serving in the U.S. House.

Political views

Love is, for the most part, is a conservative who is pro-life, opposes same-sex "marriage", and opposes stimulus spending measures.[4] However, she is a strong critic of Donald Trump, saying he has "no real relationships".[5] Despite this, and to the frustration of CNN liberals, she refused to cave into the "Trump is racist" narrative.[6]
