The Life and Political Rise of Mia Love
Monday, we’re talking about Congresswoman-elect Mia Love. Once the mayor of a small Utah County town, it took her just four years to land in the national spotlight as the first black Republican woman elected to Congress. But how did Love – the Connecticut-born daughter of Catholic Haitian parents, politically inactive for most of her life – end up an LDS congressional delegate from Utah? Reporters from the Salt Lake Tribune will join us to explore Love’s rise, stumble, and resurgence.
This program was previously scheduled to air on Tuesday, November 18.
