This past weekend, the Ohio Democratic Party held its State Convention, one of the largest gatherings of Democrats in Ohio that occurs every few years. This year’s speakers included some of the most inspiring defenders of the middle class, such as Senator Sherrod Brown, Lilly Ledbetter, who inspired President Obama to sign the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act in the fight for women’s equal pay, Pulitzer Prize winner Connie Schultz, and many of our Congressional officeholders, candidates, and Ohio Supreme Court candidates.
Immediately following the State Convention was the Party’s annual State Dinner. Montana Governor Brian Schweitzer was this year’s featured speaker, with special guests Senator Sherrod Brown and Justice Yvette McGee Brown. Through these two events, Democratic leaders from around the state were able to conduct Party business and meet thousands of local activists.
Supporters who attended Saturday’s events called it “one of the best State Dinners yet!” We hope you all had as much fun as we did.
