Fresh off well-received DNC speech, Cory Booker in Tampa Sept. 22



Cory Booker, whose speech at the Democratic National Convention drew rave reviews, will be the keynote speaker at the Kennedy King Dinner scheduled for September 22 in Tampa, according to a notice from the Hillsborough County Democratic Party.

"Hillsborough County is a must-win for President Obama, and we are glad Mayor Booker will be here to help us rally the base to get out the vote for the president," local party chairman Chris Mitchell said. "At least as important, though, is Mayor Booker's approach to local issues. Somebody said long ago, 'All politics is local.' We hope a lot of people will come out to hear how this dynamic leader has transformed his city. There are lessons we can all learn from his example."

"The Kennedy King Dinner will be held Saturday, September 22 at the Tampa Convention Center. The event begins with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7. Speeches, including the keynote by Mayor Booker, will follow dinner.
