A plate with Pelosi.
The Pennsylvania Democratic Party announced Thursday afternoon that U.S. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) will be headlining their inaugural Independence Dinner on Nov. 1 in Philadelphia.
“Pennsylvania voters will play a key role in determining our next president and the direction our country takes,” Pennsylvania Democratic Party Chair Nancy Patton Mills said in a release. “We look forward to hearing from Speaker Pelosi and showing her that Pennsylvania Democrats are fired up and ready to elect leaders who will improve the lives of all Americans.”
Sen. Bob Casey and Gov. Tom Wolf are also slated to speak at the inaugural dinner.
In a release about the event, Mills added that she expects the Democrats from across the whole state to be in attendance, including “grassroots leaders, elected officials, and donors.”
“We expect Democrats from across the state to join us for the dinner,” Mills said. “Hearing from Speaker Pelosi and the top Democrats in our state will remind people that the path to victory in Washington is talking about the issues most important to families and communities and doing everything we can to get out the vote.”

The event is set to kickoff at 7 pm at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.
