Here’s what Darryl Glenn, the Republican candidate for the U.S. Senate seat currently occupied by Michael Bennet, had to say at the Republican National Convention tonight in his very brief remarks.

This speech was supposed to help raise Glenn’s national profile as he heads into an uphill battle against Bennet, but CNN and PBS both cut away to their analysts as Glenn spoke. For those of us who needed to see what Glenn said, there was the official livestream on YouTube.

Darryl Glenn on Darryl Glenn:

Glenn clearly stated his support for Donald Trump early on, right after repeating his “unapologetic Christian conservative” tagline, and declared that he’s running for U.S. Senate “in the No. 1 battleground state in this country.”

Darryl Glenn on race and the police:

“We’re more racially divided today than before [Obama] ran.”

“We must realize that our heroes in blue are part of the solution and not the problem.”

Glenn also hit both the “All lives matter” and “Blue lives matter” notes.

Darryl Glenn on Hillary Clinton:

“Hillary Clinton is unfit to be president, and we all know she loves her pantsuits… yes, you know it’s coming… but we should send her an email and tell her she deserves a bright orange jumpsuit.”

Glenn closed with Trump’s “We can make America great again,” and a plea for votes, exhorting viewers to “believe we can win.”
