HOUSTON, Texas -- The city of Houston's push to host the Democratic National Convention in 2020 turned into a star-studded pep rally.

On Thursday, the National Committee Team welcomed Houston Rockets stars James Harden and Chris Paul to support the Bayou City's many offerings, including bipartisan unity since many

Republican lawmakers were on hand for the festivities.

"In this city, we come together to do tremendous things and that's the spirit which we want to bring to the DNC 2020," said Mayor Sylvester Turner at the pep rally.
