TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Utah congressional candidate Mia Love says it's possible to "revive" the America she came to know as the daughter of Haitian immigrants by focusing on self-reliance, not President Obama's failed policies.
Love drew rousing cheers Tuesday night during a coveted slot at the Republican National Convention in Tampa, Fla.
Love is a darling of tea-party and conservative Republicans for her groundbreaking role in state politics as Utah's first black female mayor.
She now stands to become the first black Republican woman in Congress if she topples Democrat Jim Matheson in the November election.
Love told the convention President Obama's version of America is a divided one and that the country is not better off since he took office.
She says that can change with Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan.
