Becerra's speech was bumped Tuesday night, but there appears to be a happy ending.
They bumped Congressman Xavier Becerra's speech Tuesday night, but there appears to be a happy ending.
The L.A. Democrat was scheduled to speak just before 9 p.m. (Eastern time), but — Democrats being Democrats — they were running late. And suddenly Becerra disappeared from the schedule. They skipped him.
Becerra was asked to be the good soldier and sit down tonight. This from a Democratic official:
“Due to the overwhelming enthusiasm in the arena and extended applauses, Rep. Becerra generously agreed to move his speech to Thursday.”
There's a silver lining to the rainy day story. Becerra's speech has been rescheduled to the night most Americans watch a convention: the night the President speaks, Thursday night.
Another Democratic Latino in the spotlight.
