Mia Love gave a stemwinder of a speech to kick off the prime time hour on day one of the Republican National Convention, a speech that brought the audience to their feet in cheers.

Love, the congressional candidate for Utah’s 4th District, is seen as a rising star in the Republican Party. An articulate speaker, she is a good mouthpiece for the party, but she is also a good face as the party seeks to expand its base: if elected, she would be the first black, Republican woman ever elected to congress.

Love took the stage as roaring applause rivaled the sounds of Queen’s “We Will Rock You,” the crowd having already been riled up by a video introducing Love and her candidacy.

“Let me tell you about the America I know,” Love began. “My parents immigrated to the U.S. with ten dollars in their pocket, believing that the America they had heard about really did exist. When times got tough they didn’t look to Washington, they looked within,” she said.

“So the America I came to know was centered in personal responsibility and filled with the American dream,” she said.
