Love Victory ‘Solid Gold’ for Republicans

Congresswoman-elect Mia Love will feature prominently in the GOP’s continuing push to win the support of women and minorities across the country.

Reports The Christian Science Monitor:

[T]here is a palpable excitement about the election of Love in Utah, one of the most conservative states in the country – and one which has a minuscule black population of only 1.3 percent.

“An African-American congresswoman is solid gold for the Republicans,” Larry Sabato, director of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, told the Telegraph, a British newspaper. “They have enduring, deep problems with both minorities and women across the country, so I guarantee you they will feature Mia Love prominently.”

And Love, the former mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, who often wears her hair in the kind of urban-style braids more likely seen in Brooklyn than the Beehive State, tells a classic, almost Obama-like American story of overcoming odds and achieving great heights through hard work and perseverance.
