The Democratic Party has chosen Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to chair the party’s national convention this summer in Charlotte, N.C. in a move by the party to woo Latino support.

The chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee, congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz, says in an email to DNC members that Villaraigosa will be nominated to chair the September convention.
Villaraigosa was elected mayor in 2005 and re-elected in 2009.

He is the only the third Mexican American to have ever held the office in Los Angeles and the first in over 130 years.

Villaraigosa was co-chairman of Hillary Rodham Clinton‘s 2008 presidential campaign and was a member of President Obama’s Transition Economic Advisory Board.
The L.A. mayor has graced the covers of Newsweek and Time magazine as one of the country’s 25 most influential Latinos.
