Mark Warner will Deliver Keynote Speech at Democratic National Convention

August 13, 2008

Former Virginia governor and current senate candidate, Mark Warner, will deliver the keynote address at the Democratic National Convention.

Barack Obama delivered the keynote speech at the 2004 convention. An email from Senator Obama's camp announced Warner's role Tuesday night.

Senator Hillary Clinton is also scheduled to give a speech before Warner during the convention August 26th in Denver.

The theme of Tuesday night's program at the convention is "renewing America's promise."

The Democratic Party is calling on Virginians to submit questions. They'll be answered live at the event.

Richmond is one of eight cities holding open calls for people to ask a question.

During the convention, speakers will respond to the questions live from the convention floor and online.
