Kentucky may have been won handily by Republican Mitt Romney in the general election, but Democrats from the Bluegrass State will be partying in Washington, D.C. Sunday to celebrate the inauguration of President Obama.
The Kentucky Democratic Party is hosting a reception from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel on K Street in Washington, with Gov. Steve Beshear, Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson, Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes and Kentucky Democratic Party chairman Dan Logsdon on hand.
While Democrats in Washington are attending the inaugural balls on January 21, Cincinnati area Democrats will be holding their own celebration of President Obama's inauguration at a downtown bar.
Cincy's on Sixth, at the corner of East Sixth and Walnut streets, will be the scene of a $20-a-head "Partiers for Obama" inauguration party, beginning at 7 p.m. on Monday, January 21 - seven hours after President Obama is sworn in for a second term on the west steps of the U.S. Capitol.
