PHILADELPHIA (AP) –  On Day Three of the Democratic National Convention, look for prime-time speeches from President Barack Obama, Vice President Joe Biden and Democratic vice presidential pick Tim Kaine.

Party officials said Wednesday’s speakers will focus on the theme of Hillary Clinton’s “experience and steadiness to bring Americans together.”

Other prominent speakers include former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former defense secretary and CIA Director Leon Panetta.

Taking the podium just before Obama will be Sharon Belkofer, whose son was killed in 2010 when his army was attacked by a suicide bomber in Afghanistan.

Earlier in the evening, there will be remarks from Felicia Sanders and Polly Sheppard, two survivors of the Mother Emanuel Church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina.
