Hispanic Heritage Month: Jose Hernandez of California

Jose Hernandez, running for Congress in California, former astronaut and farm worker.

 "The son of Mexican immigrants, Hernandez has made an impression on progressive Democrats for his strong support of the DREAM Act and advocacy for middle class families. His work with NASA is a central narrative in his campaign.

'I went from plowshares to the stars,' Hernandez said in October upon announcing his campaign."
