Utah Dem. Rep. Matheson Won't Run for Re-Election

Paging Mia Love


Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah, announced on Facebook Tuesday afternoon that he "will not seek reelection to the House of Representatives."

This essentially takes his seat — the heavily Republican 4th District — out of play for Democrats.

Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love, a top GOP recruit, came within a few hundred votes of defeating him in 2012. She promptly announced her rematch in early 2013.
