Love’s experience in local government as well as her straightforward, pull-no-punches approach has been garnering a lot of support. In June, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) traveled to Utah to attend a fundraiser for her campaign.
“What we love about Mia is she is a reformer,” Ryan wrote in an email. “She’s got the kind of leadership skills and the tenacity to actually fix this country’s problems. We need people who are willing to take tough votes and apply leadership to get us out of the mess we are in.”
Ann Romney, the wife of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt, has endorsed her. And Love has also received backing from the GOP members of her state’s congressional delegation as she looks to unseat the lone Utah Democrat in Congress.
