Mia Love, who lost her bid to become the first black Republican woman in the House of Representatives, says she is ready to give it another go.

Love, the mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah, announced she will run again in 2014 against Democratic Rep. Jim Matheson. The state's only Democratic congressman, Matheson beat her last year by 768 votes, the second-tightest race in the country.

Love announced her decision to challenge him at the Beehive State's GOP convention Saturday.

"You and I have some unfinished business with Rep. Jim Matheson," she said, according to The Salt Lake City Deseret News.

Love told reporters her chats with voters convinced her to run.

"I wanted to see if the momentum was there, if we could build upon what we had before," she said. "People are getting behind us and are more determined than ever to win this seat."

Love, 37, said she's uncertain whether she'll face a Republican primary challenger. "Hopefully not, but we'll see."

She is seen as a rising Republican star, and Matheson's 4th Congressional District -- centered on Salt Lake City -- represents a prime target for the national party.
