Biden Headlines Speakers' List for Va. Democratic Dinner

June 10, 2013

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - Vice President Joe Biden will headline this month's Jefferson-Jackson Dinner, the major annual fundraising gala for Virginia's Democratic Party.

The event is set for the evening of June 29 at the Greater Richmond Convention Center.

Once held in February at the height of the General Assembly session, Democrats came under fire from Republicans who claimed the party was doing an end run around state laws that forbade fundraising by lawmakers during the regular winter legislative session.

This year's dinner represents the first major coordinated Democratic fundraiser after the party settles on its statewide ticket headed by former Democratic National Committee chairman Terry McAuliffe. The primary is Tuesday.
