Kansas Democrats ponder how to recover from election losses

KSAL StaffMarch 7, 2015

Kansas Democrats are rethinking political messages for voters and pondering how to rebuild their party.

The conversations were part of their biggest annual convention Saturday. It followed their third consecutive disappointing election cycle last year.

Hundreds of Democratic activists and party leaders in Topeka for the annual Washington Days convention had little to celebrate in the way of election results.

Starting in 2010, no Democrat has won a statewide or congressional race and the party now holds less than a quarter of the seats in the GOP-dominated Legislature.

Some convention participants said the party has to change to capture congressional and additional legislative seats in 2016 and to elect the next governor in 2018.

But they haven’t settled on the best approach to rebounding and were throwing around ideas.
