From KQED News:
Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa kicked-off the Democratic National Convention Tuesday night. Both the Democrats and Republicans took care to court Latino voters by showcasing Latinos in high party places at their conventions -- the Republicans had New Mexico governor Susanna Martinez and Florida Senator Marco Rubio. The Democrats are featuring Villaraigosa and San Antonio mayor Julian Castro. But beyond the VIPs, how do the platforms treat issues Latinos care about? Host Cy Musiker talks with Louis DeSipio, who has been following the conventions. He's a professor of Chicano/Latino studies at UC Irvine.
