We are taking the opportunity to highlight all of the amazing conservative women who spoke this week at the convention.
NIGHT ONE: LAND OF HEROES
Former U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley
CWW regular Nikki Haley helped set the tone for the convention with a fiery speech denouncing racism and outlining how a Biden-Harris administration would harm America. She reminded us that “even on our worst day, we are blessed to live in America.” Watch her full speech here.
RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
Ronna McDaniel offered prayers for the residents of natural disasters in California, Iowa, and Louisiana and denounced the negative tone of the Democratic National Convention.

Florida Lieutenant Governor Jeanette Nuñez
Much like her colleagues, Nuñez praised the Trump/Pence ticket for promoting policies such as school choice, bringing jobs back to the United States, and standing up to socialist “tyrants” across the globe. She urged viewers to register to vote in order to ensure four more years. Watch her speech here.
Former Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi
One of the most aggressive speeches of the night, Bondi used her time to hit Joe and Hunter Biden on their corruption and nepotism.

She spoke of the support she received from the Administration during and after the surgery, including phone calls from both Ivanka and President Trump within hours of waking up. She advocated for the President since he supported her as a working mother in one of the most visible positions in the Administration. Watch her tear-jerker of a speech here.
