The Kansas Democratic Party is analyzing the results of the general election to see what needs to change going forward.

Kansas Democrats say even though their candidates lost some races, there is still a lot to be proud of this recent election cycle.

State party Chair Lee Kinch says all of the Democratic incumbents in the state Legislature were re-elected. The party also gained one seat in the state Senate and 13 seats in the state House.

Kinch says voting results show Democrats lost support among union families this year, and he wants to know why.

The Democratic National Convention will wrap up on Thursday night in Philadelphia with Hillary Clinton formally accepting the presidential nomination. As KMUW’s Sean Sandefur reports, delegates have found the speeches from First Lady Michelle Obama and others inspiring.

The Democratic National Convention has been historic. Hillary Clinton is the first woman to ever be nominated for president by a major party. She’ll formally accept that role on Thursday night.

Democrats in the Legislature say they are in a good position to pick up some seats in the fall election.

In this week’s primary elections, conservative Republicans beat more moderate candidates in many races.

Democrats say that could affect their chances in the fall election.
