Jim Webb, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz to appear at Virginia Democrats’ convention

Virginia Democrats will meet in Fairfax County in two weeks for their annual state party convention, with a few big names on hand to help draw a crowd. The gathering is scheduled for June 1-2 at George Mason University.

Both of those events and some smaller meetings will be held at the Mason Inn, while the main convention proceedings will take place at the George Mason Center for the Arts.

Virginia Democrats may have been hoping to attract some even bigger names to their annual gathering. The state party originally planned to hold their convention at the 10,000-seat Patriot Center, before moving it to the smaller Arts Center instead.

Party spokesman Brian Coy said the convention was moved to the latter facility after it came open on the scheduled day, because “the CFA offers us a far better venue for the kind of program we want to offer our delegates and attendees.”
