Love Advances to ‘On the Radar’ Status

Here’s further evidence the battle for Utah’s 4th Congressional District could be all-out-war in 2014. National Republicans move challenger Mia Love to “On the Radar” status in their “Young Gun” program.

Roll Call says the ranking is the first of three levels, meaning Love will now get support from the national party in her second bid to oust Matheson.

Earning this status means the NRCC “will help to provide candidates and their campaigns the tools they need to run successful, winning campaigns against their Democratic opponents,” according to an NRCC release.

The final level is “Young Gun” status.

“These 36 candidates all provide a stark contrast to their liberal opponents, whose support of ObamaCare and this Administration’s big-government, job-destroying agenda has taken a toll on the American people,” NRCC Chairman Greg Walden said in a statement.
