OXFORD- On Sunday, U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) will be the featured speaker at the Butler County Democratic Party’s Annual Wine Tasting Reception.

Senator Murphy follows U.S. Housing and Urban Development Secretary Julian Casto, who was the party’s featured speaker at the party’s spring Gala Dinner.
