The Jackson County Democratic Committee is holding its annual Truman Days celebration this weekend. The festivities at the Adam’s Mark in Kansas City started last night with the food and informal social atmosphere of the hospitality suites. Candidates, Democratic Party activists, and anyone in attendance have an opportunity to introduce themselves to each other, renew acquaintances, visit, and talk about campaigns and politics in Missouri.
