A Texas mayor has been chosen as the keynote address for the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte this September.

San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro will deliver the address on September 4th and will be the first Hispanic keynote speaker at the convention.

Castro recently hosted President Barack Obama earlier this month when the President visited San Antonio and Austin for political fundraisers.

Castro introduced the President at a fundraiser of 1,200 attendees at the Convention Center and later attended a smaller and more private fundraiser later in the day.

Other speakers at the convention are former President Bill Clinton and Massachusetts Senate Candidate Elizabeth Warren who is running against Republican Senator Scott Brown.

Castro was first elected as Mayor of San Antonio in 2009 and won a successful re-election campaign in 2011.
