Former Vice President Joe Biden will be the featured guest at the 2018 Illinois Democratic County Chairs' Association Brunch in Springfield, Ill. on Aug. 16.

That is Democrat Day at the Illinois State Fair.

The IDCCA made the official announcement Tuesday afternoon.

According to a press release, Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Illinois) invited Biden to speak.

"Joe Biden was my Senate colleague and remains my good friend," Durbin said in the release. "When I asked him to headline the largest gathering of the year of Illinois Democrats, he didn't hesitate to say yes. Vice President Biden was President Obama's strong partner - we welcome him back to Illinois."
