The mayor of Long Beach, California was one of 17 people from across the country selected as “rising stars” in the Democratic Party to give the keynote address during the second day of the Democratic National Convention.

Garcia is mourning the loss of his mother and stepfather, whose lives were cut short by the ongoing coronavirus pandemic just weeks apart.

Two weeks after losing his mother, Gabriella O’Donnell, to COVID-19, the mayor revealed that his stepfather, Greg O’Donnell, also died of complications from the virus on Sunday.

Back in July, Garcia revealed that his mother and stepfather had been hospitalized and placed on ventilators.

Gabriella, a longtime healthcare worker, was 61 when she died on July 26, while her husband was 58. The couple had been married for 27 years, and Greg died one day after Gabriella’s memorial service.

In response to Garcia’s keynote address Tuesday, the Trump campaign launched a vicious attack, tweeting: “California Mayor Robert Garcia made Long Beach a sanctuary city for illegal immigrants and even created a special taxpayer fund to support them. Garcia personifies the ‘America Last’ mentality Joe Biden has been adhering to for nearly half a century.”
