I just got back from the Fairfax County Democratic Party Jefferson Jackson Dinner. The keynote speaker was Sen. Dick Durbin of Illinois, and he was very funny. Durbin’s biggest laugh lines poked fun at Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell (about Confederate History Month) and Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli (about being a “birther”). Great stuff!
UPDATE: Here are a few photos from the dinner, starting with Susan Mariner, who is running for Democratic Party of Virginia 1st Vice Chair. Tonight, Susan demonstrated her tremendous energy and enthusiasm, driving all the way from Virginia Beach, then working the crowd at the JJ Dinner for several hours, meeting (and making) a lot of friends. Go Susan!
