It what can only be called a major coup, the Michigan Democratic Party announced today that the keynote speaker for their 2014 Jefferson-Jackson fundraising dinner will President Bill Clinton:

“I’m thrilled to welcome one of the great leaders of our time to Michigan to boost Democratic efforts to win in 2014,” said Lon Johnson, Michigan Democratic Party Chair. “We’re very much looking forward to hearing from President Clinton on how Democratic leaders can continue to work to create opportunity for all.”

“President Clinton has been a lifelong champion of the middle class, and I’m excited to welcome him to Michigan next month,” said Senator Debbie Stabenow. “President Clinton recognizes how important every race in Michigan is to this country, and his commitment to our state will help ensure that this will be a winning year for Michigan’s middle-class families.”

The dinner is Saturday, April 26, 2014 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Cobo Hall in Detroit. You can reserve your tickets online HERE.

I was wondering how they’d match last year’s speaker Vice President Joe Biden. Now we know.
