Mia Love’s new chief of staff faces immediate, undeserved criticism

Less than 24 hours ago, Mia Love announced her first two staff selections and the criticizing of her choices began within nano-seconds. Congresswoman-elect Love chose Muffy Day as her chief of staff, currently the chief of staff for Congressman John Campbell (R-CA). To run the district, she chose Laurel Price, the Operations Director of her…

Mia Love has earned this win

As I start this post, there are a mere 90 minutes until Election Day in Utah. It’s like Christmas Eve for political junkies!
