Democratic Convention 2012

San Antonio Mayor to Give Keynote at Dems Convention

Julian Castro will be the first Latino to give the speech.


The mayor of San Antonio has been tapped to deliver the keynote speech at September's Democratic National Convention — the same address that launched Barack Obama to political stardom eight years ago.

Julian Castro will be the first Hispanic-American to give the high-profile speech, a clear sign of the priority the Obama campaign is placing on winning Latino voters in November.
