Mia Love will not attend the RNC convention and serve as a Utah delegate.
From the Salt Lake Tribune:
Rep. Mia Love has decided to skip the Republican National Convention in Cleveland, giving up her delegate slot to focus on her re-election bid and to go on a congressional trip to Israel.
She saw no benefit in attending the gathering where Donald Trump is expected to claim the party’s presidential nomination.
“I don’t see any upsides to it,” Love said Friday. “I don’t see how this benefits the state.”
She’s the only member of Utah’s 40-person delegation to back out of the convention, though others are considering it, largely over opposition to Trump.
Utah Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox previously said: “I have not been supportive of Mr. Trump, and I’m not really excited to go back to a convention that’s centered around him. … There’s a chance I don’t go.”
