Kansas Democrats hire political director

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- A recent graduate of Kansas State University has been appointed political director of the Kansas Democratic Party.

The hiring of Wichita native Kerry Gooch was announced Wednesday by Jason Perkey, the party's executive director.

Gooch was an intern for the party during the past year and graduated from Kansas State in May with a bachelor's degree in political science.

Perkey says Gooch will provide infrastructure support to county Democratic parties, caucus groups and third-party organizations affiliated with the state party.

The Kansas party is working to increase Democratic voter registration and participation in upcoming elections.
