The reorganization of the State Democratic Party in the wake of Claire McCaskill’s victory in the Democratic gubernatorial primary has many Democrats feeling the party is back on track. Senate Leader Peter Kinder of Cape Girardeau, the Republican running for Lieutenant Governor, isn’t worried about the shake-up affecting his party. He says the Republican ticket is strong from the top on down. He concedes, however, the Democratic Party is in better shape with the old leadership team out of the picture. Kelley, who had served as Executive Director, was replaced by Corey Dillon – a former aide to McCaskill. Former Governor Roger Wilson takes over as Chairman from May Scheve-Reardon.
