Matheson ran in Utah's 4th Congressional District in 2012 as a result of redistricting.
On April 21, 2012, Mia Love overcame two state representatives, Stephen Sandstrom and Carl Wimmer, at the Republican state convention to become the party's representative on the 2012 ballot. Had she been elected, she would have become the first black female Republican in U.S. Congress history.
On December 17, 2013, Matheson announced he will not seek reelection in the 2014 elections.
