James Carville to headline Tennessee Democrats' fundraiser

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Political strategist and commentator James Carville will headline Tennessee Democrats' largest annual fundraiser.

Local news outlets report that the Tennessee Democratic Party announced on Friday that Carville will be the special guest for the party's annual Jackson Day Dinner set for May 7 in Nashville.

Tennessee Democratic Party chairwoman Mary Mancini said in a statement that Carville will help rally supporters as they prepare for the 2016 elections. She says Carville brings humor and personality along with political insight.

The pick of Carville marks a break from the traditional practice of selecting officeholders or candidates to headline the fundraiser.
