Mia Love speech at Republican National Convention to focus on 'the America I know'
Then she said, with a smile, that she would just wait to see what happened onstage.
“It’s like running, right?” Love said. “I don’t like to accelerate or slow down on the mountain when I’m running downhill. It’s just like I let the mountain tell me what I need to do.”
NBC News senior political editor Mark Murray said Love's appearance will be watched closely.
"It's a big deal," Murray said. "The Republican Party is trying to do it's best to produce a diverse face" and Love's personal story provides a counter to the party's difficulties with African-American and women voters.
Still, he said, there's at least some possible downside for her.
"The challenge for Mia Love is this is her first time doing something like this. There is a going to be a big national spotlight," Murray said. "There's always a little bit of a risk, but one thing about a national convention is everything is scripted."
