RNC Day 3: Mike Pence, Kellyanne Conway to speak Wednesday night

Vice President Mike Pence will be the keynote speaker Wednesday on the third day of the Republican National Convention.

Pence will deliver his speech at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, the site of a War of 1812 battle that inspired Francis Scott Key to write a poem that would eventually become “The Star-Spangled Banner.”

Pence’s wife, second lady Karen Pence, will also speak on Wednesday.

Kellyanne Conway, a counselor to President Donald Trump, will speak, as well. Conway announced this week that she will be leaving her post at the end of the month. Conway was named Trump’s campaign manager in August 2016, and was the first female campaign manager to direct a successful run for the presidency.

First lady Melania Trump closed out the second day of the convention with a speech from the White House Rose Garden on Tuesday, acknowledging those who have died from the COVID-19 virus and urging Americans to vote for her husband.
