Dems Move Jefferson-Jackson Dinner

The Missouri State Democratic party is moving the location for its annual Jefferson-Jackson dinner in St. Louis due to a labor dispute.

The dinner, which features the party's top stars and serves as a pep rally for the party, was originally set to be held at America's Center. Now it will be held at the Renaissance Grand Hotel, just across the street in downtown St. Louis.

"As Democrats, we take pride in our commitment to working families. When workers are standing up for their rights, we're standing right there with them. So, as a show of respect for the union workers currently engaged in a labor dispute at America's Center in St. Louis, the Missouri Democratic Party has made the decision to change the location of its annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner," said state chairman John Temporiti in a statement Tuesday.

Time and date remain the same. April 5th at 5 p.m. It's $125 a person to attend.

Senator Jean Carnahan, Congressman Dick Gephardt and Congressman Bill Clay will headline the event.
