Former Presidential candidate to highlight important work of Illinois Democrats

SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association (IDCCA) has a history of attracting some of the highest national officials to address the annual County Chairs’ Brunch. This year’s virtual Brunch @ 6 is no different. The IDCCA is proud to announce United States Senator Cory Booker (NJ) as the guest speaker.

IDCCA President Kristina Zahorik released the following statement.

“The IDCCA is a grassroots organization, made up of volunteers who are the backbone of the Democratic Party. They believe in Democratic values and civic duty, as does Senator Booker. Senator Cory Booker has dedicated his public life to solving the problems of people. As one of the younger members of the Senate and one of the few African American men to ever be elected to the chamber, he offers a needed perspective. Senator Booker can speak to the issues of racial and economic inequality, which have risen to the forefront of our national conversations over the last several months with authority. We are honored to have him speak at our upcoming Brunch @ 6.”

The County Chairs’ Brunch is the premiere event for Illinois Democrats every year. In previous years, the County Chairs’ Brunch has attracted thousands of Democrats to Springfield to kick off Democrat Day at the Illinois State Fair. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA), US Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN), and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (South Bend, IN) have headlined over the last three years.

This year’s Brunch @ 6 will take place on Monday, August 31st, at 6pm. More information is available online at
