    A vote for Jim Matheson is a vote for Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi

    A vote for Jim Matheson is a vote for Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi

    One of the biggest electoral scams in the country is being run by Jim Matheson in Utah-04 against Mia B. Love.

    As detailed here before, Matheson plays a Democratic moderate on TV, and strategically votes against his party on high profile votes when his vote doesn’t matter either because (as under Speaker Pelosi) Democrats had enough votes to win without Matheson’s help, or (under Speaker Boehner) Republicans had enough votes to win so Democrats joining Republicans didn’t matter.

    But make no mistake, Matheson is a part of the attempt to keep Obama in the presidency and to return Nancy Pelosi to the Speakership.

    Matheson still has a big money advantage despite Love’s successful Money Bomb, and in some old polling was far ahead.

    Finally Love has the money to take to the airwaves, and quite smartly is trying to make the Utah-04 election about Romney v. Obama. In a heavily Republican district, it’s important that voters understand that the TV actor Matheson supports Obama:

    The NRCC also is running ads pointing out the truth that Matheson mostly has been a loyal Obama supporter:

    Professor, I just want to thank you and all the LI team for following the UT-4 race so closely! I’m from Utah and Jim Matheson has been a pain in the neck for years. I’m tired of all the “Old Guard” Utah Democrats ignoring how insane their party has become and voting Matheson in just so they can be different and contrary to the rest of the state (it’s some strange badge of pride for these people to say that they’re from Utah and they voted Democrat. I will never understand them). I’m also glad that we have such a great candidate in Mia Love – she’s been the only person in a long time that’s been able to give Matheson a run for his money. I will say that it’s a lot of fun being able to support Mia Love instead of just running against Jim Matheson. Thank you for all you do and thanks to all the LI readers who’ve donated to Mia Love (I’m not with her campaign in any way – I just want someone to finally beat Jim Matheson!)
