Laning elected chair

Martha Laning was elected chair of the state Dem Party with 721 votes.

Jason Rae was second at 428.

After announcing the results, outgoing Chair Mike Tate handed over the gavel to Laning, who takes office immediately. 

She thanked her supporters and then gaveled out the convention, telling delegates she will see them at next year's convention in Green Bay.

The rest of the vote totals for state chair were: Joe Wineke 191 votes, Steve Smith 6 votes, Jeff Smith 3 votes.

State Rep. David Bowen was elected 1st vice chair. He ran as a ticket with Laning. Party rules require gender balance between the chair and vice chair. Because Laning won the chair's race and Bowen was the only man in the race, he was the only one eligible.
