Sanders Keeps Post as Missouri Democratic Chair



(AP) — Missouri Democrats have re-elected Jackson County Executive Mike Sanders as chairman of the state party.
Sanders initially became party chairman in November 2011. The state party said Monday he was re-elected during a leadership vote Saturday.
Democrats also elected St. Louis Comptroller Darlene Green as vice chairwoman and Kansas City School Board chairman Airick West as party treasurer. He is currently the president of the Kansas City School Board.
Democrats hold five of the six statewide offices in Missouri’s executive branch but have struggled in legislative races. Republicans now control a veto-proof supermajority in both the House and Senate.
