Other California speakers include House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (San Francisco), House Democratic Caucus Chairman Xavier Becerra (Los Angeles), Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, former Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, Rep. Ted Lieu (Torrance), Rep. Adam Schiff (Burbank) and Rep. Maxine Waters (Los Angeles).
Newsom has announced a bid for governor in 2018. Villaraigosa is said to be considering jumping into the race after the November election.
