I hadn’t realized this race had turned around so much. Great news.

Saratoga Springs Mayor Mia Love has overcome a double-digit deficit to overtake Rep. Jim Matheson in Utahs hotly contested 4th Congressional District, the latest Deseret News/KSL poll shows. Love, a Republican, now leads the six-term Democratic congressman 49 percent to 43 percent.

Dan Jones & Associates found that among registered voters, 36 percent definitely favor Love, while 13 percent lean her way. The poll showed 31 percent definitely voting for Matheson and 12 percent leaning toward him. Eight percent are undecided.Jones surveyed 414 residents in the 4th District from Sept. 26 to Sept. 29. The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 5 percent.

“She is really coming on,” pollster Dan Jones said. Via the Deseret News.

Meanwhile, the NRCC has committed $1.7 million in ad buys for the race.

    Worth noting: Oregon Tea Party head John Kuzmanich and Multnomah County Republican chair Jeff Reynolds provided consultation to Love’s campaign early on, helping her past that initial double-digit handicap.
