Wis. Democrats elect nation's youngest chair
GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin's Democratic Party says it now has the nation's youngest state chairman in either party.
Wisconsin Democrats elected Mike Tate as their new chairman Saturday at their convention in Green Bay.
He just turned 30 in March.
Tate has been involved in state Democratic politics for more than a decade.
He has worked for several politicians and led the Fair Wisconsin campaign in 2006 that attempted to defeat a constitutional ban on gay marriage.
Tate replaces Joe Wineke, who is stepping down after four years.
