LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - Former Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm will be the featured speaker at the Democratic Party of Arkansas' Jefferson-Jackson dinner.

Saturday's event in Little Rock is being held as Democrats try to rebound from the November 2012 election in which Republicans took control of the state Legislature for the first time since Reconstruction.

Granholm served as Michigan's governor from 2003-2011.
