Lots of love for Mia Love
I think Mia Love would be a winner without Romney as the GOP nominee. She has a conservative message that Republicans are eager to embrace. She also demonstrates that blacks can win elections as Republicans in white districts easier than they can in predominantly black districts. In both cases it is about ideology. That is what makes the trope about racism so misplaced. Conservatives love candidates like Mia Love, Allen West and Tim Scott. Liberals tend to see them as apostates.
Mia Love, who would be the first black Republican woman in the House, is drawing on enthusiasm for Mitt Romney.
