Mike Pence closes out night 3 of the Republican National Convention

The 2020 Republican National Convention continued Wednesday night, with Vice President Mike Pence delivering the keynote address from Fort McHenry in Baltimore. Other speakers included Kellyanne Conway, Sen. Joni Ernst and Madison Cawthorn, a controversial 25-year-old paraplegic candidate who is seeking to become one of the youngest members of Congress.

The convention’s third night was held amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic that has left more than 179,000 Americans dead and more than 5 million infected; Hurricane Laura, which is expected to make landfall along the Gulf Coast Wednesday as a Category 4 storm; and protests over the police shooting of Jacob Blake, an unarmed Black man, in Kenosha, Wis., four days ago.
