The Democratic Party of Virginia’s major fundraiser was held Saturday evening at the Greater Richmond Convention Center. The fundraiser was soldout to excited democrats looking forward to a democratic ticket win at the general election in November. The guest speaker for the evening and supporter of candidate for governor Terry McAuliffe, was Vice President of the United States of America Joe Biden. He said, McAuliffe stands for investing in education, jobs and science and he is the best candidate for governor of Virginia.
Biden became a little emotional speaking on the Republicans (Tea Party) in Congress lack of support for the Violence Against Women Act.
“[The Tea Party] is still debating, whether or not women in this country are entitled to be free from fear, particularly from those who say they care about them,” Biden said.
U.S. Congressmen Bobby Scott, Gerry Connolly and Jim Moran were in attendance ,as well as, U.S. Senators Tim Kaine and Mark Warner.
I had the liberty of traveling in the VP Biden’s motorcade with the first stop at the Croaker’s Spot on Hull Street and the final stop at the Greater Richmond Convention Center for the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner.
