|Mia Love lost the U.S. Congressional race last year by only 768 votes|
He adds: "Hansen will also help her bring in donations. There was a thought that when Love lost a winnable race against Matheson in 2012 she wouldn’t get another chance. The conventional wisdom after the election said big donors would likely shy away from donating again, keeping her out of the race. Having Hansen at the helm should assuage any fears that Love could choke again. National Republicans are once again targeting Utah’s 4th District and are poised to throw significant resources at Matheson to unseat him. There may be some hesitation to get behind Love after what happened in November. Hansen will minimize that. Plus his connections in Washington from his time as head of the Utah GOP will open up more fundraising doors usually not available to Congressional challengers."
