Villaraigosa: No ‘Madison Avenue Ad Executives’ At The DNC

Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, who is also serving as chair of next week’s Democratic National Convention, said on Friday that his party’s confab will have more substance and less glitz than this week’s Republican National Convention.

“You won’t see all of the Madison Avenue ad executives as you saw the last convention, kind of made Governor Romney warmer and fuzzier,” Villaraigosa told MSNBC’s Chuck Todd. “What you will see is a lot more beef.”
