Pinellas Dems and Jefferson-Jackson gala?

So the Pinellas County Democratic Party is sending out invites for a Jefferson-Jackson Day Victory Gala 2008 this Saturday at the Hilton Carillon in St. Petersburg. U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson, State Sen. Dave Aronberg and state party chair Karen Thurman are expected.

Now, Bay Buzz can't confirm this, but we're told the famously fractious Pinellas Democratic Party hasn't been able to actually pull out a full-on Jefferson-Jackson Day celebration in years. So this would be a big deal for the local party.

The reception starts at 6 p.m. and dinner is at 7 p.m. And then there's a party at Luna Lounge.
