The big fundraiser for Iowa Democrats is the Jefferson Jackson dinner. It will take place on October 16th, 2010. Before they announce who their keynote speaker is, they want to give people a chance to guess. Here are the clues from their Facebook and Twitter page. Everyone who enters a correct guess will be entered into a drawing for two tickets to this year’s dinner.
I’ll just let you know who it is, it’s Ed Rendell – Now Give Me My Tickets!
Please join me in entering this contest. 🙂
