Democrats from across Kansas gathered for the party's 2012 state convention and completed delegate selection for the national convention this September in North Carolina.

Dakota Loomis, spokesman for the party, told The Topeka Capital-Journal that much of the convention Saturday in Topeka centered on completing the delegate selection process with more than 50 candidates running for eleven at-large spots. The Kansas Democratic State Committee elected six women and five men to attend the national convention in Charlotte, N.C.

In addition to the eleven at-large delegates, the state committee also chose five party leaders and elected official delegates. A committeeman and committeewoman also were selected.

Joan Wagnon, Kansas Democratic Party Chair, also said the recently redrawn state election maps have "energized Kansas Democrats."
