The daughter of Haitian immigrants is the Republican nominee for Utah's 4th congressional district.

Mia Love, a mayor of an "exurb" south of Salt Lake City, has won the Republican nomination for the 4th district congressional district.

More below the Half Pipe.

Finally, something interesting in Utah has happened this ski/snowboard season.  After our crappy, inadequate snow; Republicans have nominated the daughter of Haitian immigrants for congress.

Utah's Republican attorney general called her a "novelty".

She will face Democrat Jim Matheson.  Well, in any other state; Matheson would not be considered a Democrat.  But we take what we can get around here.  He moved from his old district into a new district created after the 2010 census.

More about her here.

Just to prove that, yes, she is a real Republican; she was late in filing her campaign finance reports and they contained errors.  The comments at this link contain some interesting comments.  They may be legitimate or they may be trolls.  I wouldn't know.  I avoid Utah County unless I am taking my kids to the dinosaur museum down there.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
