Love hits the campaign trail running

Love-Matheson » Matheson says he is ready for a rematch — this time with no Mitt Romney coattails.

< Previous Page

Love praised West’s convictions, although she distanced herself somewhat on style, particularly some inflammatory comments he has made — for example, suggesting Democrats in Congress were communists and calling President Barack Obama a tyrant.

She said candidates can agree on values and differ on style and their message.

West has started an organization called the Guardian Fund, created to help elect conservative military veterans and minorities to Congress.

West noted that he had the opportunity to pose for a picture with Love and Utah GOP Chairman James Evans, all three of whom are black, which West said was historic. If she is elected, Love would be the first black Republican woman in Congress.

"Think how powerful that image is, because you did not bring us to these positions because of the color of our skin. You allowed us to have these positions because of the content of our character," he said. "That is what makes us different from the Democratic Party."
