Black Female Mormon Republican Could Unseat Utah's Only Democrat in Congress

I think Hugh Hewitt needs to write a new book. This time, he could call it A Black Female Mormon Republican in Congress. I'd buy that:

Mia Love, who is also a Mormon and mayor of a small town in Utah, has stunned political analysts by winning her primary election.

If she wins her congressional election, the 36-year-old will make political history as the first black Republican woman to serve in Congress.

The actual Daily Mail story leads with, "A mother-of-three and fitness instructor could be on track to become the first black female member of Congress." Which isn't true. Not by a long shot. There have been plenty of black female members of Congress.

Unless .... maybe they know something over at the Daily Mail we don't?

She's a man, baby!

And obviously her Democratic opponent sees her as a threat. He's the first Democrat to jump ship and publicly say he'll vote to hold Eric Holder in contempt. I doubt that's a coincidence.
