SALT LAKE CITY — Mia Love announced Saturday her second candidacy for the 4th Congressional District.

Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love told the Utah Republican Organizing Convention Saturday she would be running for the 4th District seat in Congress in 2014.

"We have some unfinished business with Jim Matheson," she said.

In the 2012 general election, Love lost to Matheson by 768 votes. The candidate quickly received national attention in the election, and was chosen to speak at the 2012 GOP National Convention. Love told KSL in an interview after the election that she was "absolutely" surprised by her loss.

In her announcement Saturday, she said the election showed her what to do next time to be successful.

"I am confident in our country. I am confident in our future. And I have great confidence in the people of Utah and America," Love said.
