Mia Love's announced that she's going to take another shot at Utah Rep. Jim Matheson's seat in the 2014 run. Last time out, she mounted an interesting come-from-behind effort; losing to Matheson in the end by the slimmest of margins. That initial foray received help from Portland-area folks: Jeff Reynolds - Multnomah County Republicans head, and John Kuzmanich - head of Oregon TEA Party.
No word as yet on whether they'll be involved this time around; Love says she learned a lot in her first run, though, setting her team up for success next year.
She's since hired a top consultant from Utah Republican Sen. Orrin G. Hatch’s team and began organizing her campaign early this year.
