Gore to Headline Jefferson-Jackson

Gee, guess I'll be blowing off JJ this year

The Iowa Democratic Party announced today that former Vice President Al Gore will be the keynote speaker at the 2008 Jefferson Jackson Dinner. The dinner will be held on Saturday, October 4, 2008 at HyVee Hall in Des Moines. This will be Mr. Gore’s first trip back to Iowa since he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize and authored “An Inconvenient Truth.”

“We are deeply honored that former Vice President Al Gore, our nation’s leading voice on combating the global climate crisis and a Nobel Peace Prize winner, will be the keynote speaker at our Jefferson Jackson Dinner,” said Scott Brennan, Chair of the Iowa Democratic Party. “I join Governor Chet Culver and Senator Tom Harkin in expressing gratitude to former Vice President Gore for accepting the invitation to speak at what will be our biggest event of the year. We are excited to welcome him back to Iowa.”

Speak for yourself, Scott...
