Mia Love, who was widely expected to become the first black female Republican congresswoman in history, has conceded a very close race to incumbent Democrat Jim Matheson in the 4th district of Utah.

“Congratulations to Jim on a hard-fought victory,” Love said in a statement. “It was a close race, but ultimately the voters of Utah have spoken.
