I'm told this is the speech from tonight's Republican National Convention opener that the Trump campaign thinks will get the buzz tomorrow.

What to watch: In the 9 p.m. ET hour, Vernon Jones, a Democratic state representative from Georgia, will argue that Democrats have abandoned Black voters and the working class.

  • In an excerpt exclusively for Axios, Jones says, "We are free people with free minds. I am part of a large and growing segment of the Black community who are independent thinkers. And we believe that Donald Trump is the president that America needs to lead us forward."

The big picture: The prime-time lineup of Nikki Haley, Donald Trump Jr. and Sen. Tim Scott is aimed at showing the country a diverse GOP, from the former UN ambassador and daughter of Indian immigrants to MAGA icon Don Jr. to the Senate's only Black Republican.

  • Don Jr., setting a template for the four nights, will paint Joe Biden as a leftist, while stirring in a positive policy vision for a second Trump term.
  • A source tells me Don Jr. will say that from China to taxes to immigration to free speech to law and order, "In fact, if you think about it, Joe Biden’s entire economic platform seems designed to crush the working man and woman."

Potential breakout star: Sean Parnell, a charismatic former Army Ranger who’s running in a hotly contested Pennsylvania race against Rep. Conor Lamb (D).

Joe Biden is calling for the winner of November's presidential election to select Ruth Bader Ginsburg's replacement on the Supreme Court.

What he's saying: "[L]et me be clear: The voters should pick the president and the president should pick the justice for the Senate to consider," Biden said. "This was the position the Republican Senate took in 2016 when there were almost 10 months to go before the election. That's the position the United States Senate must take today, and the election's only 46 days off.

President Trump will move within days to nominate his third Supreme Court justice in just three-plus short years — and shape the court for literally decades to come, top Republican sources tell Axios.

Driving the news: Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and Senate Republicans are ready to move to confirm Trump's nominee before Election Day, just 46 days away, setting up one of the most consequential periods of our lifetimes, the sources say.
