Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa predicts President Obama will get close to 70% of Latino vote in November

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa is behind enemy lines tonight. The co-chair of the Obama Campaign and chairman of the Democratic National Convention is on hand at the Republican National Convention to rebut the message from the GOP. He talks with John Berman about his role at the convention in the midst of Tropical Storm Isaac.

Villaraigosa says he’s in Tampa to challenge the Republican platform “in a way that is respectful of the other party.”

“We’re to compare and contrast, but we’re also here together, working together, to make sure that people are safe," he says.

Villaraigosa also comments on the Latino vote for both candidates with regards to issues of immigration, health care and education. He predicts President Obama will get close to 70% of the Latino vote. “I think it is because the Republican Party and Mitt Romney have gone so far to the right on issues that are important to them,” Villaraigosa says.
