DAVENPORT, IOWA (May 18, 2022) — Democratic elected officials, candidates, and supporters will gather at 5PM, Saturday, May 21, at Davenport’s RiverCenter, 136 E 3rd St. Davenport, for the annual Red, White, and Blue Gala. Gubernatorial candidate Deidre DeJear will give the keynote address. Congressional candidate Christina Bohannan, and US Senate candidates Abby Finkenauer, Admiral Mike Franken, and Dr Glenn Hurst will also be in attendance.

“The Gala will support Scott County Democratic candidates,” Matt Trimble, Scott County Democratic chair, notes. “It will be a fun evening, but we won’t forget the reason we are gathering. Our purpose is to elect Democrats to restore our freedoms to vote, access health-care, have a quality public education, enjoy safe and clean neighborhoods, and earn a living wage.”

A silent auction and 50/50 raffle will also help raise money for the 2022 election cycle. “I strongly encourage all Democrats to take this opportunity to network with each other, meet our candidates and elected officials, and enjoy a meaningful night out,” Trimble says. “The 2022 election will be critical to our way of life, whether you live in rural Iowa or in the heart of the city. Your vote matters now more than ever.”
