California Speaker John Perez, a rising star in the Democratic party

Assembly Speaker John Perez speaks with KPCC's Patt Morrison during the 2012 Democratic National Convention.

The 2012 Democratic National Convention has an unmistakably Californian flavor to it. Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is the convention chair, state Attorney General Kamala Harris, and four House members, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, will speak at the convention.

Also addressing the Delegates is John Perez, the speaker of the California Assembly. How can Perez manage to resonate with an audience that may well be suffering from California fatigue by the time he speaks?


Is there such thing as too much California for the nation convention?
