|Republican candidate for Utah's Fourth Congressional District Mia Love will join the circus. Senator Tim Scott (R-SC) won a full term. Both won their elections easily.|
Of course, Tim Scott, won a full term as the U.S. Senator from South Carolina. But here comes Utah's Congressional Fourth District victor Mia Love. The candidate won her bid for the U.S. House.
This is a first for the mostly WHITE Republican Party. They have two Black elected U.S. lawmakers.
Both were insurgent candidates.
Scott, the first Black senator since Reconstruction won easily against the Democratic challenger. He and Lindsey Graham (R-SC) both continue their reign as U.S. Senators. He along with Cory Booker will be the only two Black U.S. Senators currently serving.
Mia Love, the former mayor of Saratoga Springs, She became the first Black lawmaker from Utah to win after a defeat. The first time she was defeated by Democratic House representative Jim Matherson in a nail biter race in 2012. Now that Matherson retired from Congress, Utah's only Democratic held seat finally flipped to the Black Republican. The seat was heavily REPUBLICAN.
Matherson was the most vulnerable Democrat ever to hold a seat. He couldn't take it no more. He retired. Cook political analysis had Utah Fourth Congressional District at +15 REPUBLICAN. The Democrats were at risk of losing the seat anyway.
Ludmya Bourdeau "Mia" Love (born December 6, 1975) is the first Haitian American and first black female Republican ever elected to Congress. Love won the Republican nomination in the 4th Congressional district at the April 26th, 2014 Utah Republican convention. She won election to the House of Representatives from the 4th District of Utah, defeating Democratic opponent Doug Owens.
She's a pro-life, anti-immigration, pro-fracking, and pro-gun politiico.
She has said that if elected to Congress, she would “join the Congressional Black Caucus and try to take that thing apart from the inside out” and has described the Democrat-dominated Caucus as characterized by “...demagoguery. They sit there and ignite emotions and ignite racism when there isn't. They use their positions to instill fear. Hope and change is turned into fear and blame. Fear that everybody is going to lose everything and blaming Congress for everything instead of taking responsibility."
Timothy Eugene "Tim" Scott (born September 19, 1965) is the junior United States Senator for South Carolina.
Scott was born in North Charleston, South Carolina to Ben Scott, Sr. and Frances Scott, a nursing assistant. His parents were divorced when he was 7, and he grew up in poverty under the care of his mother who worked 16-hour days. He has an older brother who is a Sergeant Major in the U.S. Army.
Scott attended Presbyterian College from 1983 to 1984, on a partial football scholarship, and graduated from Charleston Southern University in 1988 with a B.S. in Political Science.
In addition to his political career, Scott owns an insurance agency, and works as a financial advisor.
Scott is one of only two African-American members currently serving in the United States Senate.
Scott will not join the Congressional Black Caucus.
Mia Love will be added to the list of labels. Tim Scott and Cory Booker are already labeled here on Journal de la Reyna.
Mia Love, Tom Cotton, and Joni Ernst are going to be extremely controversial lawmakers. Hopefully I am proven wrong. So far, the junk food media is already propping them up as "rock stars".
