Mia Love scares Rep. Matheson into retirement

Good news via HuffPo: the young mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, will likely be the next Congress(wo)man from the district.

Democrats in the state are spinning this as a good thing: Matheson can challenge either the incumbent Republican governor or Senator Mike Lee in 2016.  However, this does mean that the party of “old, white men” will be sending a 38-year-old Haitian Mormon woman to Congress, which kind of destroys the narrative.
