Actor-comedian Alec Baldwin will headline the Nov. 27 Iowa Democratic Party Fall Gala, the party announced.
While Alec Baldwin captured national attention for his portrayal of Donald Trump on Saturday Night Live, he is just as committed to putting a stop to the irresponsible lawmaking in DC and places like Iowa, according to the partys announcement.
Heading into the 2018 midterm elections and beyond, I have decided to rededicate my efforts to helping the Democratic Party win across the country, Baldwin said in a statement, adding you can plan on seeing me out there with folks on the ground fighting this most important battle for our future.
Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Troy Price welcomed Baldwin lending his voice to the growing chorus of people who are ready to see change in Iowa.
Acknowledging the party has challenges in the 2018 election, Price said Democrats are not backing down, and were not taking anything for granted.
The Fall Gala, formerly called the Jefferson Jackson Dinner, will highlight the strength of our great ticket, as well as the passion and commitment Democrats have to take back our state, Price said.
In addition to his acting, Baldwin has been an advocate for progressive and philanthropic causes. He is on the board of People for the American Way and active in the animal rights movement. The Alec Baldwin Foundation has supported several causes since it was founded in 2006, including efforts to address homelessness, eliminate the death penalty and find cures for breast cancer and AIDS.
The Fall Gala will be held at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines.

Is he still beating Kim Basinger?
It will be a distinct pleasure to hear from Alec after the 2018 midterm elections.
Make-believe is all they have left. Pathetic is in the rear-view mirror.
How, exactly, is Trump disrupting their life?
They don't call it that anymore.
Now it's the Fall Gala.
I'd post a picture of the crying Indian from that commercial, but Jackson already sent him packing across the Mississippi.
I thought that putz was going to leave the country.
Jefferson had nothing to do with the founding of the Democrat party. The true founder is a mystery like Obama’s birth place but one of the founders was Aaron Burr! I wouldn’t own up to Burr either would you?
Is he still yelling at and calling his daughter every name in the book? The guy is nutso.
