Mayor Villaraigosa is not in Los Angeles today -- he's in Washington DC. Now that Senator Hillary Clinton is out of the race for the White House, the mayor has put his support behind Senator Barack Obama. And today's supportive move is to "introduce Obama at the annual convention of the League of United Latin American Citizens, or LULAC," according to the Daily News.
