Mia Love has been confirmed as a speaker at the 2012 Republican National Convention next week.

According to the Utah Republican Committee Chair Thomas Wright, Love will be speaking on Tuesday evening during prime time television.

The 2012 Republican National Convention is being held in Tampa, Fla. Aug. 27 - 30.

Love is mayor of Saratoga Springs, Utah and the GOP candidate for Utah’s Fourth Congressional District. She is running against Rep. Jim Matheson, who has served six terms for Utah’s Second Congressional District.

"I think it is a nice contrast," said Matheson regarding Love's speaking engagement. "All my opponent has been about is party, party, party. I'm about putting Utah first and that's the difference in this race."

Last week, national Republican leaders, including John McCain, were in Utah to help her fund raise.
