Ed Rendell headlines JJ



Ed_rendellIt ain't Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama, but at least it's not Steny Hoyer. Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell is set to headline the Democrats' Jefferson-Jackson gala this weekend. Word is ticket sales were already way up. From Karen Thurman today:

"Barack Obama wants you to know he regrets that his busy schedule prevents him from  joining us this weekend, but he is proud to have Gov. Rendell represent him at the biggest Democratic event of the year in  Florida....Throughout this historic primary season, there were few  people who were more vocal about their support for Hillary Clinton than Ed  Rendell. But as a former national party chairman, the Governor  knows that all Democrats must rally around our nominee quickly in order for us  to prevent four more years of Bush Republican failures with John McCain."
