Jefferson-Jackson date moved

The N.C. Democratic Party has changed the date of its annual Jefferson-Jackson Dinner.

The Raleigh fundraising event typically features high-profile national Democrats as keynote speakers. Both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama have been invited this year, though neither has confirmed yet.

The dinner will now be held at the Dorton Arena at the N.C. State Fairgrounds in Raleigh on May 2 — four days before the state primary and after Pennsylvania's contest has ended.

"With our State playing a critical role in the Presidential nominating process, this year's dinner promises to be one you won’t want to miss," said party chairman Jerry Meek in a statement.

A reception will kickoff the event at 5:30 p.m., with dinner starting at 7 p.m. Tickets are $250 for both event or $125 for dinner. Theater seating is also available for $25.

The Dorton Arena has a maximum seating capacity of 7,610.
