U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN) to be Guest Speaker at
Annual Chairmen’s Brunch
Springfield, IL – On Thursday, August 17th, the Illinois Democratic County Chairmen’s Association will host their annual Chairmen’s Brunch. This event is the largest Democratic event every year and is expected to draw over 1,000 County Chairs, Precinct Committeemen, Elected Officials, candidates, labor leaders and Democratic Party activists from throughout Illinois. The IDCCA will also present Hon. Lauren Beth Gash and Hon. Bill Houlihan with the IDCCA Democratic Party Builder award for their years of service to the Democratic Party.
The IDCCA is also honored to announce that U.S. Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN) will be the Guest Speaker for the event.
IDCCA President Doug House released the following statement regarding the IDCCA Chairmen’s Brunch:
“The Chairmen’s Brunch is the largest Democratic event every year and it is a great opportunity to come together as a Democratic Party. This year, more than ever, we must be unified in our fight against Bruce Rauner and Donald Trump. If we expect to stop these two from continuing to run our state and country into the ground, every Democrat must step up and do more.”
House further added:
“We are excited to hear from one of the rising stars in the Democratic Party. Senator Klobuchar has a proven track record of fighting for the Middle Class and the Midwest. Alongside Senators Durbin and Duckworth, she is getting things done and standing up for what’s right. We are honored to have her as this year’s Guest Speaker for the Chairmen’s Brunch.”
