Alec Baldwin To Headline Iowa Democratic Party Fall Gala

Emmy-award winning actor will rally Democrats on November 27 ahead of 2018 elections.

The Iowa Democratic Party announced today that progressive advocate and Emmy-Award winning actor Alec Baldwin will be taking the stage as the 2017 Iowa Democratic Party Fall Gala Keynote Speaker.

While Alec Baldwin captured national attention for his portrayal of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, he is just as committed to putting a stop to the irresponsible lawmaking in DC and places like Iowa. Ahead of the premier of the 43rd season of Saturday Night Live, he told reporters that he hoped that his work would inspire Americans to vote in the midterm elections.

“Heading into the 2018 midterm elections and beyond, I have decided to rededicate my efforts to helping the Democratic party win across the country. That effort begins in earnest in Iowa on Monday, November 27th,” said Mr. Baldwin. “There will be many more opportunities both before and after, and you can plan on seeing me out there with folks on the ground fighting this most important battle for our future.”

“We are so excited to welcome Alec Baldwin to Iowa, and to have him lend his voice to the growing chorus of people who are ready to see change in Iowa. He will be able to provide a unique and entertaining perspective on the challenges facing our country and how we can work together to rebuild our party,” said Iowa Democratic Party Chair Troy Price. “There is no question we’ve got our work cut out for us next year. We’re not backing down, and we’re not taking anything for granted. This year’s dinner will highlight the strength of our great ticket, as well as the passion and commitment Democrats have to take back our state.”
