More than 500 people attended. Attendees included Reps. Jim Moran (D-Va.), Gerry Connolly (D-Va.), likely gubernatorial nominee Terry McAuliffe and a slew of state legislators.

The dinner, formerly known as the Jefferson Jackson dinner, was renamed the Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt Dinner. The couple’s great granddaughter, Anna Fierst of Maryland, attended.

Pelosi spoke about Virginia’s distinction as a battleground state and the importance of building the Metrorail extension to Dulles International Airport.
