Utah's Mia Love hasn't exactly announced that she is running for Congress again, but Rep. Jim Matheson isn't taking any chances.
Orrin Hatch has served Utah for many years — maybe too many. The political mood among Republican voters favors fresh faces with tea party connections, and while the 76-year-old Mr. Hatch may be a veritable political institution in his state, he's not exactly fresh.
At the same time, "Jim Matheson certainly learned that Mia Love is a formidable candidate she can raise funds and get national attention," he said. "So it seems inevitable that there would be a rematch between these two."
"He leaves nothing to chance. But Mia Love is very interesting," Mr. Jowers said. "If Matheson could pick anyone other than Mia Love to run against, I think he'd pick curtain No. 2."
