Sen. Dick Durbin, D-IL, will speak at this year’s Hubert H. Humphrey Day Dinner. The dinner, which is a fundraiser for the Minnesota DFL Party, will be held on June 11th. The event, which is traditionally closed to the press, typically features a well known leader in the Democratic Party. Barney Frank spoke at last year’s event.
