Former mayor of Los Angeles and Democratic candidate for governor Antonio Villaraigosa said that he is a “Democrat with a small ‘d'” during a recent interview with CALmatters.

“I’m a Democrat with a small ‘d,'” Villaraigosa said, after explaining why he first voted Democratic.

The reporter asked Villaraigosa what he meant by that statement.

“I’m not a Democrat because I think the Democratic Party is perfect by any stretch of the imagination. I’m a Democrat because I believe the government has got to work for more people,” Villaraigosa said.
