U.S. Senator Kamala Harris of California will speak the Ohio Democratic Party annual dinner in October.

Last month, President Donald Trump headlined the Ohio Republican Party’s annual state dinner. Now the Ohio Democratic Party has also chosen a high-profile speaker for its annual event.

U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris of California, an outspoken critic of President Donald Trump and Republicans, will speak at the Ohio Democratic Party’s annual legacy dinner in October.

Party spokesperson David DeWitt says Harris talks about issues that Democrats care about, especially in a big midterm election year.

“Hard working Ohioans deserve access to affordable health care, good paying jobs and a fair shake. And that’s what Sen. Harris fights for and that’s what we are fighting for," DeWitt says.

The event will be held on Sunday, October 7 at 5 p.m. at the Columbus Convention Center.

She reports on issues of importance to Ohioans including education, legislation, politics, and life and death issues such as capital punishment.
