Said Love: “The President’s behavior towards me made me wonder: What did he have to gain by saying such a thing about a fellow Republican. It was not really about asking him to do more, was it? Or was it something else? Well Mr. President, we’ll have to chat about that.”
Ben McAdams (D) declared victory in his race against Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) — after he gained a 739-vote lead in ballot updates from Utah and Salt Lake counties, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
“Love did not yet concede, and a few votes still remain uncounted in the two big counties before their vote canvasses Tuesday formally conclude two weeks of tallying ballots. But McAdams said even his small lead is insurmountable with the few ballots remaining to be counted.”
Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) is winning her re-election for the first time since Election Day after an updated vote count in Utah County pushed her narrowly over challenger Ben McAdams (D), the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
“Love is currently ahead by 419 votes, reversing Thursday’s 1,002-vote lead for McAdams, who has spent the past week in Washington going to House orientation meetings and appearing in the freshman class photo with new lawmakers from across the country.”
“Ben McAdams’ (D) lead over Rep. Mia Love (R) continued to slip away Wednesday after an updated vote count out of Salt Lake and Juab counties showed the incumbent congresswoman gaining crucial votes,” the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
“And with the heavily-Republican Utah County expected to update its count on Friday, McAdams precarious lead of 0.36 percentage points is likely to change, and could potentially erode away entirely.”
Ben McAdams (D) held his tenuous lead over Rep. Mia Love (R-UT), following the addition of roughly 40,000 votes to Utah County’s election totals, the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
“While only 7,666 of those ballots fell within the 4th congressional district — where McAdams is challenging the two-term Republican congresswoman — Monday’s release by Utah County is potentially decisive, as it includes the bulk of outstanding ballots in the conservative stronghold.”
President Trump threw Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) under the bus, saying she lost her re-election bid because she didn’t embrace him enough on the campaign trail.
But UtahPolicy.com has confirmed that President Trump recorded a campaign robocall for Love’s campaign in the final days of the 2018 election in which he touted Love’s efforts to secure the release of Utahn Josh Holt from prison in Venezuela.
A new KUTV poll in Utah’s 4th Congressional District reports a 6 point lead for Ben McAdams (D) over incumbent Rep. Mia Love (R), 49% to 43%.
A new Salt Lake Tribune/Hinckley Institute poll in Utah’s 4th congressional district finds Rep. Mia Love (R-Utah) tied with challenger Ben McAdams (D), 46% to 46%.

Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) has a theory for why Democrats are targeting her seat — and it’s not because her Democratic opponent, Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams (D), has pulled within single digits in numerous polls, Roll Call reports.
It’s because, she is black, Republican, and successful.
Said Love: “They do not like the fact that I am a black female Republican doing everything I possibly can to talk about the issues that help people go from the lowest common denominator up.”
A new UtahPolicy.com poll finds Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) leads challenger Ben McAdams (D) by just 4 percentage points, 47% to 43% with another 10% still undecided.
A new Salt Lake Tribune-Hinckley Institute of Politics poll shows Rep. Mia Love (R) with a small 5-point edge over Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams (D), 47% to 42%, “a slightly narrower lead than she had three months ago and just outside of the margin of error of plus or minus 4.9 percentage points.”
Key factor: “While 48% of voters statewide approve of Trump’s job performance, just 42% do in the 4th congressional district — and 56% disapprove. So neither Love nor McAdams will be successful by cuddling up to the president.”
A new Salt Lake Tribune/Hinckley Institute poll in Utah finds Rep. Mia Love (R-UT) leading challenger Ben McAdams (D), 48% to 42%.
Salt Lake County Mayor Ben McAdams (D) announced he is running for Utah’s 4th Congressional District, teeing up a 2018 challenge against two-term Rep. Mia Love (R-UT), the Salt Lake Tribune reports.
Said McAdams: “We sat down with our kids and we told them that we expect that this will be ugly. There will be a lot of negativity. And that does give me pause. Ultimately, the moment that good people are bullied out of running for office because of fear of the negativity, then Washington really is lost.”
