Mia Love: A Rising GOP Star

Mia Love is on a quest to become the first black Republican woman elected to Congress. Love, the mayor of a small town in Utah, is a rising star in the Republican Party. She addressed the Republican National Convention on Tuesday evening, hammering President Obama’s policies:

“President Obama’s version of America is a divided one — pitting us against each other based on our income level, gender, and social status. His policies have failed! We are not better off than we were 4 years ago, and no rhetoric, bumper sticker, or campaign ad can change that.

Mr. President I am here to tell you we are not buying what you are selling in 2012.

The American Dream is our story. It is a story of human struggle, standing up and striving for more. It’s been told for over 200 years with small steps and giant leaps; from a woman on a bus to a man with a dream; and the bravery of the greatest generation, to the entrepreneurs of today. This is our story. This is the America we know because we built it.”

The RNC crowd exploded with cheers and a standing ovation during Love’s speech. You can view the video below:
