On Friday, Daily Rundown host Chuck Todd asked Antonio Villaraigosa — Los Angeles mayor and chair of next week’s Democratic National Convention — about an issue the host had brought up yesterday amid much controversy.

“Let me ask you, though, this one question,” said Todd, after the Mayor commented about the GOP losing certain demographics. “Why is that that the Republicans have elected more women governors and have two Hispanic governors and the Democrats don’t? They don’t have as many women governors and don’t have Hispanic governors. Why do you think that is?”

“We have a lot more legislators and mayors and congress members that are women,” said Villaraigosa. “That are Latino that are Asian and African-American. We have a much broader tent, a much broader representation of every walk of life. People from, you know, every ethnicity and race and sex. It’s true that they may have more governors, but we have a much broader field when you look at all of the elected officials.”
