Newsom on Time's 'hotshot' panel in Denver

The morning after hosting a rock ‘n’ roll concert, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom returned to more familiar settings Tuesday at the Democratic National Convention in Denver.

Newsom began his second day at the convention on a discussion panel group, as part of Time Magazine’s five Democratic “Hotshots to Watch,” according to a news release issued by the mayor’s office. Time’s feature on the up-and-coming Democrats, which also recognizes Congressional representatives from Alabama, South Dakota, Pennsylvania and Florida, appears in the magazine’s Sept. 1 edition.

After completing the panel, which started at 9:45 a.m. MST at a local Denver restaurant, Newsom is scheduled to co-host a reception at the Denver Tea Room at 9:15 p.m., according to the mayor's office.

Newsom’s appearance in Denver is part of a recent whirlwind of travel activity for the San Francisco mayor. On July 27, he married Jennifer Siebel at her prairie estate in Montana, and a day later the couple took off for an extended honeymoon in Africa. Newsom arrived back in San Francisco late last week before leaving The City once again for the convention in Denver.

Newsom, who has already begun an exploratory committee on a possible run for governor in 2010, opened his duties in Denver by co-hosting a rock festival Monday night featuring bands such as Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Nada Surf.

Despite the 10 p.m. time slot for the show, Newsom was back in action in the morning for his spot on the Time Magazine panel Tuesday.
