Second lady Karen Pence told Fox News on Wednesday that her address to the Republican National Convention that night will focus on the "heroes of our country," and particularly "our military community."
Pence told "Fox & Friends" that the theme of the night is "Land of Heroes," and that "America is made up of people who are heroes."
She noted, "I get to talk a little bit about our military community," adding that it’s "near and dear to my heart."
Pence said, "I've worked a lot with military spouses to help them with employment and I've also done a lot of work with veterans on preventing suicide. So it'll be an exciting night to highlight the heroes in this great country."
The second lady complimented the previous two nights of the convention as "phenomenal," saying, "we are telling an empowering, optimistic, hopeful message," and that the theme of the first night was "Land of Promise."
She said, "This president has kept his promises, but he didn't tell you that on the first night; we actually had everyday Americans tell of the promises that he's kept for them and it's a land of promise. It's a land of opportunity, which was the second night's theme."
Pence continued, "This president wants to empower every American to enjoy the opportunities that we have in this country and it was very inspiring to me."
