SALT LAKE CITY – The first black Republican woman elected to Congress and the newest member of Utah’s congressional delegation, Mia Love, was sworn into office Tuesday.

Rep. Love was elected to fill Utah’s Fourth Congressional Seat, left vacant by Congressman Jim Matheson.

Love says, as a member of Congress, she would like to put the decision-making back into the hands of the American people, by involving them in the political process.

This Sunday during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Representative-Elect Love said she will do everything she can to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act.
