SPRINGFIELD, Illinois – The annual IDCCA County Chairs’ Brunch held in mid-August has become a traditional rallying point shifting Democratic Party activism into high gear. IDCCA President Doug House is confident that this year’s keynote guest and speaker, Former Vice President Joe Biden, will build unprecedented enthusiasm and help boost attendance well beyond last year’s record turnout.

“Over the last three years, our Democratic County Chairs have invested in training, recruitment, coalition development and party building,” said House. “Illinois Democrats are fighting like never before to stop the dangerous Republican agenda to dismantle 70 years of American working and middle-class prosperity. Without question, Vice President Joe Biden, U.S. Senator Dick Durbin and J.B. Pritzker will rally, motivate and inspire Illinois Democrats to execute the battle plan to ensure a ‘Blue Wave’ in every county of our state.”

With a keen understanding of the hardships that Bruce Rauner and Illinois Republicans have forced on working and middle-class families, Senator Durbin delivered the party’s pitch and secured the confirmation of Biden as the 2018 keynote guest.

“Joe Biden was my Senate colleague and remains my good friend,” Durbin said. “When I asked him to headline the largest gathering of the year of Illinois Democrats, he didn’t hesitate to say yes. Vice President Biden was President Obama’s strong partner – we welcome him back to Illinois.”

Biden’s visit will reinforce the enthusiastic momentum that gubernatorial candidate J.B. Pritzker has built among Democrats and working families all over Illinois.
