  •  cedillo and Yearly Kos (3+ / 0-)

    I like Romero and Judy Chu, but just a brief untold story about Sen. Cedillo.

    Two years ago when Kid Oakland was raising money to get people who would otherwise not be able to afford what was then the Yearly Kos convention a ticket, he called me and asked who would be someone good in the Latino community in Southern California to contact.  Sen. Cedillo had good relations with us at Calitics and I mentioned him.  Within a couple days, his office worked with KO and found an undocumented student who was willing to attend, and they raised the money necessary for it to happen.  In the California caucus, that student made an impassioned plea for the DREAM Act that members of the netroots might not have been able to hear if it weren't for that program.  It was one of the most emotional moments of that convention, and I'm glad Sen. Cedillo's office facilitated it.
