Utah congressional candidate Mia Love said Tuesday it's possible to ''revive'' the American dream 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 woman to become a mayor. She now stands to become the first black Republican woman in Congress if she topples Democrat Jim Matheson in the November election.
