Mark Warner to Give Keynote Address at The Democratic National Convention

Barack Obama picked former Virginia Governor and Senate candidate Mark Warner to give the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention in Denver later this month.

According to Politico Sen. Obama is targeting Virginia as a traditionally Republican state that he could turn blue this year. Virginia hasn't voted for a Democrat for President since Lyndon Johnson carried the state in 1964.

Warner will speak on Tuesday night of the Democratic Convention. The theme of Tuesday’s night program at the Convention is Renewing America’s Promise.

While Warner is giving the Convention's keynote speech, Hillary Clinton will speak later that evening.

Obama's choice of Warner for the keynote address has renewed speculation that he will choose Virginia Governor Tim Kaine has his Democratic running mate.
