According to a press release from the Fillmore County DFL, the event will feature plenty of live music. Also sharing the stage with Keillor will be two local DFL candidates — former state Rep. Ken Tschumper of La Crescent and Jack Krage of Winona. Tschumper is challenging Republican Rep. Greg Davids of Preston. Krage is running against 1st-term GOP Sen. Jeremy Miller of Winona.
The event will be at the Lanesboro Community Center on Wednesday, Sept. 19. The doors will open at 6 p.m. and there will be pre-show entertainment provided by several groups including the Rutabaga Brothers and the Rhubarb Sisters. At 7:30 p.m., Keillor is expected to take the stage. The press release adds that "the evening will begin and end with spirited patriotic sing-alongs." Keillor has long been a supporter of the DFL and wrote the book "Homegrown Democrat: A Few Plain Thoughts from the Heart of America."
A group opposed to the marriage amendment and another one opposed to the voter ID amendment will also be on hand to pass out information to voters.
The cost is $20 per person at the door — cash or check. There will be no advance ticket sales. All proceeds raised will support Democratic candidates in the 2012 election.
