Mia Love (Republican)

Mia Love’s innovative attitude and dynamic presence are deeply rooted from her experience in the American dream. Her parents fled Haiti to escape from political corruption taking with them the powerful hope that comes from the possibility of freedom. Growing up in Connecticut, Mia recalls both parents working hard to earn a living, her father at times taking on second jobs cleaning toilets to pay for school for their three children. Mia recognized from a young age the power of sacrifice and the need for enduring values in the community.



Ben McAdams (Democrat)

Ben McAdams is the twice-elected mayor of Salt Lake County. McAdams is a seventh generation Utahn who was raised in a family of eight where he learned the values of hard work, honesty, and duty to the community. As mayor, he has brought Republicans and Democrats together to get things done such as address homelessness, form partnerships with the private sector to create jobs and improve education — all while managing a balanced budget. Mayor McAdams will take these Utah values to Washington and work with parties on both sides of the aisle to find solutions to our nation’s challenges and support opportunities for all Utahns.
