Dem Day at the State Fair 2018

Aug
16

Had a great time at this year's State Fair. Featured are a couple of pictures from the Dem get-together in the 'Budweiser Tent' during 'Dem Day'. There were only a few short speeches before everyone got to turn to the fair itself. On the stage were Juliana, JB and Sen. Durbin.

Dem Day Part II

Aug
21

Dem Day itself, that is Wed., Aug 19, consists of two key events: the County Chair breakfast and then the rally later in the day on the Director's Lawn in the State Fair grounds proper.

The first photo is of Gov. Quinn addressing the attendees at the County Chair breakfast. The second photo is Sec. of State Jesse White speaking later on at the rally -- under a tent for fear of rain. Happily the rain seemed more than ready to accommodate Illinois Democrats -- waiting till the event was well over before breaking loose in torrents.

Dem Day Part I

Aug
21

A couple of pictures of the festivities surrounding Dem Day at the State Fair. In this post, I have two photos from the night before, or in other words, Tuesday, Aug. 18.

The first shot is of Boone's Saloon (RIP). Alas! Despite the change in traditional venues -- and the fact that we're in an off-year, the Sangamon County Dems still drew a pretty good crowd for their annual meet-and-greet fundraiser (sorry, no photos).
