CONCORD (AP) — The New Hampshire Democratic Party is trading in Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson for two more modern Democratic presidents for its annual fundraising dinner.
Chairman Raymond Buckley says the party is changing the name from the Jefferson-Jackson dinner to the Kennedy-Clinton dinner, after John F. Kennedy and Bill Clinton.
The name change will take effect for this year's dinner at the Manchester Radisson Hotel on Oct. 29.
Some state Democratic parties have stripped the names of Thomas Jefferson and Andrew Jackson from the event over their histories as slave owners. South Carolina Democrats dropped the "Jefferson-Jackson" title from their fundraising dinner in August. Iowa and Georgia Democrats voted to make the change last year.
