BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — The Louisiana Democratic Party’s annual fundraiser in August will feature visits from prominent Democratic political figures in Maryland and New Jersey.

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Newark Mayor Cory Booker will be the keynote speakers at the annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner. O’Malley is now serving as chairman of the Democratic Governors Association.

New Orleans Sen. Karen Carter Peterson, the party’s chairwoman, said the event will be Aug. 4 at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in New Orleans. The Times-Picayune reports that Peterson says the dinner will mark the first time the fundraiser has been held in the New Orleans area in more than a decade.

Tickets range from $150 for individual tickets to up to $5,000 for a table.
