NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee says the focus of her address this week at the Republican National Convention will be “honoring our heroes.”

In an interview Monday, Blackburn said she will speak Wednesday and will soon receive more details about whether that will be in-person or virtual.

She said she has examples of people helping after tornadoes earlier this year and during the COVID-19 pandemic, of law enforcement and emergency room nurses and of normal people doing smaller acts.

She called the Democratic National Convention's focus on President Donald Trump “puzzling," saying people know if they agree with him or not.
