MDP Announces Top Obama Advisor and Strategist Robert Gibbs as Jefferson-Jackson Keynote Speaker
Gibbs Will Deliver Keynote Address at Cobo Center in Detroit on April 28th

LANSING - The Michigan Democratic Party is pleased to announce that Robert Gibbs will deliver this year's keynote address at the annual Jefferson-Jackson Day Dinner in Detroit. Jeff-Jack will take place at Cobo Center in Detroit on Saturday, April 28, 2012.

Robert Gibbs has been an advisor and strategist to President Obama from the early days of Obama’s 2004 Senate race to his sweep to the White House. Most recently, Gibbs has served as President Obama’s Press Secretary, presiding over daily press briefings at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. He has traveled a long road with President Barack Obama, and his rapport and access to President Obama provides intimate and insightful commentaries. Gibbs is one of President Obama’s masterminds and he can speak with great authority and accuracy from a White House insider’s perspective on any of the issues that have crossed the President’s desk. His leadership of President Obama’s campaigns makes him a valuable commentator on the upcoming 2012 elections.

"Robert Gibbs can provide intimate insight into the Obama campaign and administration," Michigan Democratic Party Chair Mark Brewer said. "His experience and leadership will be a great addition to this year's Jeff-Jack program."

"President Obama and Robert Gibbs have been fighters for Michigan for years," added Brewer. "We're looking forward to hearing from Robert Gibbs next month and look forward to celebrating with Democrats from across the state. Please join us for this exciting event on April 28th."
