Deutch, whose campaign estimated he could speak as early as 4:30 p.m., said he plans to talk about several topics including early voting and his family.

The speech will be about “the importance of this campaign to me as a son and a father,” he said, adding that this is the first year his twin daughters, 20 years old, and his son, 18, will be able to vote.

Deutch said the chance to speak on the final night of the convention is “an amazing opportunity,” and that when Hillary Clinton’s campaign called to ask if he would participate, “It was an easy yes.”

Deutch is running for re-election in Florida’s recently redrawn District 22, which includes Highland Beach, Boca Raton, Margate and Fort Lauderdale.
