Washington • Republican congressional candidate Mia Love flexed her fundraising muscles in the past three months, amassing $476,000 for her rematch with Rep. Jim Matheson, D-Utah.
That's far more than Matheson's total of $257,000, but the congressman still holds a slight advantage when it comes to available cash. He has $460,000 at his disposal while Love has $456,000, according to reports filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission.
"This is only the beginning," Love said in a statement. "Besides building a tremendous base of financial support, our campaign is developing strong grass-roots organizational support throughout the entire 4th Congressional District. That support from thousands of Utahns will result in victory in 2014."
