WASHINGTON (AP) -- Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, former Virginia Gov. Tim Kaine and Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick are among prominent Democrats who will speak at their party's national convention in Charlotte.

The Democratic National Committee released a roster of speakers Monday. Besides Emanuel, Kaine and Patrick, speakers include Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, Sen. John Kerry of Massachusetts, Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley and former Ohio Gov. Ted Strickland.

The group will join previously announced speakers that include former President Bill Clinton, Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren and San Antonio Mayor Julian Castro, who will be the first Latino keynote speaker at a Democratic convention.

The convention will be held from Sept. 3-6 in Charlotte.
