Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi spoke to the Republican National Convention at the Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland on Wednesday night. This is a transcript of her speech.

New York, aren't you proud? Florida, I love you. I love you.

November 8th is a day of reckoning for all those who have abused their power.

It's the day when we the people will take back our government.

From Washington bureaucrats playing doctor with our health care. To a resident who's been playing fast and loose with our constitutional rights and Russian roulette with our borders.

November 8th, is when America feels safe again, because that's when America wins again.

Because winning this election means reclaiming something to which I've dedicated my entire career: the rule of law.

Laws that make our neighborhoods safe. Laws that make our economy strong. Laws that apply equally to everyone.

And Louisiana, now more than ever, laws that back our law enforcement. They have our backs. And Donald Trump will have your backs.

But today, these laws are under siege by a president determined to ignore laws he doesn't like, and by a former secretary of state who believes the laws don't apply to her.

And by the way, she deserves no security clearance. How do you become president of the United States when you have no security clearance? This lawlessness must stop. Right here. Right now.

Donald Trump will stop it.

Lock her up, I love that. Stay with me.

Donald is going to roll back Obama's unconstitutional executive orders. Hang on ...

Donald is going to roll back Obama's unconstitutional orders.

He will enforce immigration laws to keep us safe, while allowing legal immigrants to bless this nation with their talents and their dreams. And California, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Donald Trump will take control of our borders, because we must stop the influx of cocaine and heroin coming into our country and my state, killing our kids.

Oh, and then there's this. Hillary believes our enemies — this is unreal — Hillary believes our enemies deserve our respect and empathy. Donald Trump believes terrorists deserve to die.

Hillary will stack the Supreme Court with liberal justices who will allow government to continue its rampage against our individual rights, with utter contempt for our Second Amendment.

I know Donald. And I am proud to know Donald. He will appoint conservative justices who will defend, rather than rewrite, our Constitution.

I have one question for all of you here today. Are you ready to send ISIS a message that we are really coming after them?

When Donald Trump is president, he will.

So America, on November 8th, remember this:

If you believe in limited government…

If you believe in our historic constitutional rights…

If you believe in the rule of law…

If you believe it's time for America to start acting like America again…

There is only one choice in this election: Donald Trump.

America's for Trump. And so am I.

God bless America, and God bless the Trump family.
