Mia Love draws big cheers at Republican National Convention

August 29, 2012 (TAMPA, Fla.)

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.
