TNDP Jackson Day Celebration To Be Held At Belmont University

Wednesday, June 9th, 2010

Tennessee Democrats can hear Vice President Joe Biden give the keynote speech at this year’s Jackson Day Celebration at Belmont University’s Curb Event Center on Friday, July 16.

Doors for Jackson Day will open at 4:30 p.m. and the program will begin at 5:30 p.m. CDT. For attendance information, go to the Tennessee Democratic Party’s website at or call 615-327-9779.

“Tennessee Democrats are excited Vice President Biden will help us kick off this year’s critical mid-term elections with his appearance at Jackson Day,” Tennessee Democratic Party Chairman Chip Forrester said.

“Our economy is bouncing back from one of the worst recessions this country has seen since the Great Depression, and the policies put in place by this Administration and Congress are helping put Tennesseans back to work.”

Biden served in the U.S. Senate for 36 years before becoming the nation’s 47th Vice President. As the chairman or ranking member of the Senate Foreign Relations and the Judiciary committees during much of his tenure, the Vice President has helped shape this nation’s foreign policy and its criminal justice system.

“We have plenty more work to do, and that’s why it is vitally important we motivate Tennessee voters to go to the polls this November and elect more Democrats to Congress and the state Legislature,” Forrester added. “Jackson Day will help us build momentum for this fall’s elections.”

Jackson Day is an annual event held by the Tennessee Democratic Party honoring President Andrew Jackson, the founder of the modern Democratic Party.
