Jefferson-Jackson Day event 2009

We want to remind everyone that the upcoming Jefferson-Jackson Day dinner. The Iowa Democratic Party’s annual Jefferson Jackson Dinner is our largest event of the year. We are excited this year to welcome Vice President Joe Biden back to Iowa. This will be the first time he has returned to our state since last year’s historic election where Iowans helped deliver him and Barack Obama to the White House.
Proceeds from our JJ Dinner will go to help fund the 2010 Coordinated Campaign. Next year will be a tough year, and it is important that we keep Iowa moving forward by re-electing Governor Chet Culver, defeating Senator Chuck Grassley, re-electing our outstanding Democratic Congressmen, winning back the 4th and 5th Congressional Districts and expanding our majorities in the Iowa House and Senate.

U.S. Senate Candidates to be featured at first-ever JJ after-party

DES MOINES, IA – The Iowa Democratic Party’s 2009 Jefferson Jackson Dinner will feature the debut of a new event – a Victory 2010 after-party highlighting the party’s outstanding candidates for U.S. Senate, Iowa Democratic Party chairman Michael Kiernan announced Tuesday.

“We have an excellent chance to defeat Sen. Chuck Grassley next year and great candidates competing for the chance to be the party’s Senate nominee,” Kiernan said. “We want to recognize and support our announced candidates and have some fun at the same time.”

This will be a less-formal get-together of Iowa Democrats at a site adjacent to the dinner, Kiernan said.

The Victory 2010 event will be held at Hy-Vee Hall at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, November 21. Vice President Joe Biden is the featured speaker at the dinner. The Jefferson Jackson Dinner is traditionally the largest annual gathering of Iowa Democrats.
