Rahm Emanuel will headline Democratic dinner

The Iowa Democratic Party announced Tuesday that Chicago Mayor and former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel will provide the keynote address at the organization’s largest fundraiser.

“It’s an honor to welcome Mayor Rahm Emanuel to the state for the Jefferson Jackson Dinner and to hear him speak to Iowa Democrats in support of President Obama,” said Democratic Party Chairwoman Sue Dvorsky.

“Mayor Emanuel has proven to be one of the great advocates for Democratic values and middle class opportunity throughout his service in both the Clinton and Obama administrations, as a leader in Congress, and now at the helm of the great city of Chicago.”

The dinner will take place Nov. 19 in Des Moines, exact time and location to be announced.

Emanual served Illinois 5th District from 2003 to 2009, when he resigned to join the Obama administration. He was also chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee during the 2006 mid-term elections, and continued to provide election strategy throughout the 2008 election cycle. He was elected as chairman of the Democratic Caucus in the U.S. House while it was under Democratic control, making him at that time the fourth highest ranking Democrat in the nation.

He was elected mayor of Chicago in February, earning 55 percent of the electorate, and was sworn into office in May. William M. Daley, the brother of former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley, was subsequently named to Emanuel’s former chief of staff role.

“As we approach the first-in-the-nation Iowa Caucuses, announcements like this will continue to bring Democrats together and build the organization we need to win in 2012,” added Dvorsky.

Tuesday’s announcement follows the party’s launch earlier this month of TheCaucuses.com, the party’s official website for the Iowa Democratic Caucuses.

Republicans and Democrats caucus separately, and currently incumbent President Obama faces no serious primary challenge. For Democrats, the caucuses will likely serve as an affirmation of their support for Obama and several items of political housekeeping that will impact the county and district parties as they move forward toward election day.
