Matheson Again on List of ‘Most Vulnerable’ House Members

Second verse, same as the first. Roll Call released their list of the 10 Most Vulnerable House Members, and once again Utah’s lone Democrat in Congress makes the list.

This isn’t surprising, given that Matheson is usually on these things and his very close victory over Mia Love last time around.

He’s back. Matheson has appeared on — and defied — this list many times before. But the nature of his conservative district, his top competitor and a slim margin of victory last year make him vulnerable again in 2014.

Mitt Romney carried this district with 67 percent last year; meanwhile, Matheson eked out a 768-vote victory. Matheson will be helped by not having Romney on top of the Utah ballot. But his returning opponent, Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love, has vowed to run a more efficient campaign the second time around.
