Ossoff to deliver keynote speech at annual County Chairs’ Brunch

SPRINGFIELD, IL – The Illinois Democratic County Chairs’ Association (IDCCA) is proud to announce United States Senator Jon Ossoff (GA) as the guest speaker at the annual County Chairs’ Brunch.

The County Chairs’ Brunch has a history of attracting some of the highest national officials and is a premier event for Illinois Democrats.  In previous years, the County Chairs’ Brunch has had the pleasure of hosting Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (CA), US Senator Amy Klobuchar (MN), and Mayor Pete Buttigieg (South Bend, IN) in the great state of Illinois.

Sen. Ossoff won his seat in the 2020 Georgia run-off, which gave Democrats the crucial 50-seat threshold in the United States Senate.  This allows Vice President Kamala Harris to be the tie-breaking vote.

IDCCA President Kristina Zahorik released the following statement.

“I remember just this past January when we all had Georgia on our mind — we waited anxiously to see if Jon Ossoff and Raphael Warnock would help tilt the balance of the Senate in favor of the Democrats. They did, and we are seeing the fruits of our labor as Democrats in Washington pass legislation like the American Rescue Plan to help our country build back better. Jon Ossoff was the right candidate for the job, and we’re honored to have him join us in Illinois to inspire us to keep our Democratic majority in 2022.”

This year’s Brunch to kick off Democrat Day (now Governor’s Day) at the Illinois State Fair will take place on Wednesday, August 18th at 9:00 am CT at the Crowne Plaza Springfield.  More information is available at

We would like to invite members of the Illinois & National Press Corp to join us in-person on Wednesday, August 18th. Members of the Press Corp will be asked to RSVP for the event.
